We have an organisatgion that has upgraded from 2003 to 2007

in 2003 the email address policy was based on logon name (or pre windows

2000 logon name to be precisie), e,g for user "John Doe" the logon might be

"JohnD"

Email addresses were generated using the logon name.

Is that possible in exchange 2007?

regards

If that's so you must have written some sort of custom replacement. Or

perhaps you just happen to set the value of the mailNickname property

for the user to be the same as the sAMAccountname property. But

Exchange 2003 (and 2007) only use these variables in the policies:

%i = initials

%g = given name

%s = surname

%m = alias (mailNickname)

%d = display name

Or maybe it was the "alias"?

What was possible in 2003 is possible in 2007.

Thanks Rich

The use of Alias might well work
