Exchange Recipient policy upper case or lower case.

Within my exchange 2003 Recipient Policy is a "smtp" generation rule which reads %g.%s@mydomain. When I run a report of all exchange user email addrresses some are "firstname.lastname@..." and some are "Firstname.Lastname@..." how can I formalize the address for all users so the are either upper or lower case and not both !

This should only be picked up via the AD account information where the First name and Last name are entered. I think you would need to check AD for this. Are you only worried about this for report reasons? The SMTP addresses are not case sensitive.

thank you, yes I'm only interested for reporting reasons but users (mgmt) will see the report and query the difference and the fact is that although smtp addresses are not case sensitive users will still complain re. the non formity of it all. Is there any any way to formalize,
You'll need to make sure that when the users are created in AD that the Given and surname name is entered correctly using a capital for the first letter and the %g and %s simply read the Given and Surname attributes from AD in order to generate the address.

Once you clean up AD I guess you would need to rebuild and update now on the recipient update service in order to apply the change.

I was looking into this problem as well and found this:


It is possible to do (I have tested this and it works in Exchange 2003) with a little bit of creative %rxy use.
