Domain name in Exchange 2003 SMTP email address modification

All of my users have the email address appearing as username@ABCdefg.com and I would like them to appear as username@abcdefg.com (basically lowercase).  I am using Exchange Server 2003 Std. in an all Windows 2003 forest.  I tried changing the RUP defautl policy so that "ABCdefg" domain name would appear as "abcdefg" but even when I go to make a new user the defauly email address is going to @ABCdefg.com and then I have to later change it under the users SMTP address setting.  The main purpose for my request is because I am using Exclaimer to produce corp. signatures and I do not want the email address to appear in uppercase.

Unfortunately Exchange sees ABCdef and abcdef as the same thing.
You will also see problems with the email address generation, if you are using the %g.%l@domain.com for example then you will get the John.Smith@domain.com. I usually end up resetting the email addresses manually.

I'm guessing it's doing it this way because of the domain name being spelled ABCdefg.  I wasn't sure if there were settings that could be modified to correct the problem at hand.

Chaging the way the domain name appeared in the default recipient policy corrected the problem where new users would get stuck with username@ABCdefg.com.  Even though during the new user creation process it shows username@ABCdefg.com, AD will report the email address correctly as username@abcedfg.com.  

Regarding ADModify.NET, the mass update change would not do first initial + last name @ domain.com for some reason.  The %1g@s would just show up as 1gs@domain.com.  Oh well, not a big deal I guess, only 50 more people to change manually.
