Identical names

In MS Exchange Server 2000, two or more identical names are not allowed. For example, "John Smith" on @mycompany.com and "John Smith" @hotmail.com is not allowed. What we do to over come is to add something in the end to make it different i.e. "John Smith (Hotmail)" - Is there a way around to make these accounts.

Use middle initials.

Use a number after the name.
Use first initial+middle initial+last name.
Use only first initial+middle initial+last initial.

If you are asking how to use exactly the same name twice it can't be done.  If you are John Smith and I am John Smith and we work for the same company and have exactly the same email address how could it possibly know which one the mail is intended for when it comes in?  The only other way this could possible work (and it would not be very secure) is to send the email to both people and let the user delete it if it is not for him.
