    The Microsoft Exchange Server Mailbox Manager has completed processing mailboxes

    Exchange 2003 doesn't recognise OUs as a filter.
    Your best option though is to use an attribute on a the user accounts. Department for example, or a custom attribute. These can be set in bulk using admodify.

        You build a filter in the usual way. That is documented in many many places.

          hi Sambee,

          We have Exchange 2003 standard, with one storage group and mailbox store. I created a recipient policy that deletes items older than 30 days from the Inbox, Sent Items, and Deleted Items. We have one mailbox that is shared by the President, Vice Presidents, and CEO to recieve mail from our parent company. Is there a way to exempt this mailbox from the policy? Can I create another policy that applies to this mailbox only and move it above the existing policy that applies to all mailboxes so that the new policy will take precedence

            Yes, create a new recipient policy and, as long as it is applied first, it will win
            Note that, as Sembee told you, you will need to create a suitable filter
