  • Default Email address for new users

    I want to be able to create new users in AD, and create the mail box at the same time...I can do that, but I want the primary email address to be [email protected]

    How do I get this as a default email addy for my users?

    Right now, I have [email protected] ([email protected])

    Thanks

    From this site here you can see instructions on how the email address is formated. The normal is the logon, but you can change that...

    You may wish to change this format with one or more of these clever variables. For example, to build the displayName from the first 3 letters of the firstname added to the first 4 letters of the last name. The secret of custom SMTP addresses is to control this family of % variables:

    %g = givenName.
    %s = sn (Last name).
    %4s = means first four letters of sn.
    %d = displayname.
    %m = Exchange alias.

    Example: %3g.%[email protected] translates to = [email protected]

      -Open EMS
      -Expand <Exchange Org>\Recipients\Recipient Policies
      -In the right-hand pane double-click the Default Policy
      -Click on the E-Mail Addresses (Policy) tab
      -Edit the address to %g.%[email protected]
