This won't do what you want.

This would just update the email addresses of the group itself.

I changed the formatting of the query below, which I think adds to the
clarity thereof. It's pretty obvious from this that it'll match on a
single item: a group that has a mailnickname of "TorontoUsers".

What you want to do is build a recipient policy based on the memberof
attribute for each member that is in the group.

Subject: [exchangelist] Problem with recipient policy for a group

I have created a new recipient policy called TorontoUsers. I have
created a
Universal group called TorontoUsers. The Universal group TorontoUsers
has an
exchange alias of TorontoUsers. All users in Toronto are members of that
group. The policy is applied as follows:

                                & (mailnickname=*) (|

Members of the group have not received the e-mail addresses as specified
that policy, only receiving the default which every else has.

I have applied the policy and forced an update of the Recipient Update
Service several times over the last 36 hours. By default, the Recipient
Update service runs every 4 hours, and AD replicates amongst 2 sites
every 4

Some one have an idea of what I am missing here?
