MIM 2016 GALsync contacts are being stamped by Exchange Address policy

Exchange default policy includes the stamping of contacts. So when MIM exports contacts then Exchange will stamp the contacts with a local email address, this will lead to a sync loop. There have been several recommendations to change this

  1. Create another Address policy specifically for contacts. This involves creating another accepted domain and your contacts are still being stamped.
  2. Disable your default policy via a Powershell command.

None of these worked for me. I do Not want my MIM contacts stamped by anyone but MIM.

Solution

How to Make Default Policy as Non-Default Email Address Policy (EAP):

1. Go to ADSIEDIT

2. Connect to Configuration Container

3. Navigate to Configuration -> CN=Services -> CN=Microsoft Exchange -> CN=Recipient Policies -> CN=Default Policy

4. Goto Properties

5. Change msExchPolicyOrder from 2147483647 to 2 ( 2 can be any number that is not assiged to other Policy )

6. Apply Change.

7. Now you will be able to edit the default policy and remove contacts from the included Recipients.
