How can I format logoname and default email address when adding users?

When I add users, I use a template.
How can I format the logonname and e-mail adress?

Should be something like %Firstname%FirstletterLastname and %Firstname.$Lastname@internetdomainname.com.

I'm not quite sure about the username, we generate all our accounts with scripts so we don't have to worry about whatever it defaults to.

For the e-mail address are you using Exchange on there? If so you need to modify your Recipient Policy. The format you want is:

%g.%s@internetdomainname.com

You may have to do that through once of the wizards, afraid I'm not sure on that one, but hopefully someone will be along later to confirm. If not it's:

Exchange System Manager
Recipients
Recipient Policies
Default Policy (unless you have others configured)
E-mail Addresses Policy Tab

Then edit the e-mail address there.

I'm a bit confused.  When you use the add-user wizard, you enter the person's first and last names.  Then, under login name there is a drop down box which offers you choices on which format you want to use for login.  It then changes the email alias to that same format.

Yes Jeff,

Thats what I  see but I want the userlogin (FistnameBeginletter_from_lastname) and the e-mail in a diff format.
And a "." between first- and lastname.

If I can format the choices the wizard gives me I am happy.
Saves me some typing.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I'm afraid it would require editing the wizard in Visual Studio... not really sure if that's what you want to do.

If you can tell me where I can find the script, I am going to have a look at it.

Got myself some scripts from the net. How to bulk import users and create users and their mailboxes.
Looks promising.

Those aren't SBS scripts, I'm guessing.  Make sure that you don't use regular Server 2003 scripts.... because there are a bunch of other items which are needed for SBS.
