Create recipient policy for e-mail prefix.

Hi guys,
  Heres what i want to do. I have all the users in AD in the following user name format. firstnamelastinitial@AD domain.

I'm bringing their e-mail inhouse to Exchange server. But all their e-mail addresses are in the format firstinitiallastname@companyname.com

I know how to create receipient policy to generate e-mail addresses with @companyname.com but how do i generate the e-mail address prefix to the format they are already in ????

Thank guys,
Vinod.

You will need to use a new recipient policy  -I would leave the existing one alone.

Then configure it using the options shown in this article at ms kb: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=822447

Simon,
Great document. Thank you....

Also if i decided to switch all their login names to firstinitiallastname format, is there any automated way of doing this or do i have to do this manually ???

Thanks!

Login names is a bit more difficult. I would probably do that manually, but it will cause a mess which you might not like.
