A quick Exchange 2007 rant

Ardent and I were chatting yesterday and as I had just finished trying to figure out some recipient address policies, I ranted a little... It turned out funny, so I figured I'd share:

(11:13:08 PM) Me: now all you need to do is explain to my why exchange 2007's moved to a more scripted approach vs gui
(11:13:22 PM) ardent: for what
(11:13:31 PM) Me: it's like they decided to do everything via scripting, then made the [limited] gui after the fact
(11:13:34 PM) Me: everything
(11:13:44 PM) ardent: because real coders hate gui
(11:13:48 PM) ardent: its more 'stable'
(11:13:49 PM) ardent: :-)
(11:14:16 PM) Me: take recipient address policies -- in 2k3, you had a text field to type in what you wanted an address template to be
(11:14:40 PM) Me: in 2007, you've got about 6 radio boxes to choose from. If that's not what you want, you've gotta use the undocumented powershell commands
(11:14:55 PM) Me: and real coders don't administer exchange ;)
(11:15:01 PM) ardent: hahahaha

In case you're wondering how I ended up setting an address template to get .@domain.tld, via powershell I ran "get-emailaddresspolicy fl". That showed me where the not quite right template that I had added via the gui was. After trying a couple things and getting errors, the final command I ran to update the default policy was 'Set-EmailAddressPolicy -Identity "Default Policy" -EnabledPrimarySMTPAddressTemplate %1g.%s@domain.tld'
