Hello.

I am trying to figure out the different variables that Exchange 2k3 SP2 has to create email addresses thru Recipient Policies. I know the %g and the %s, but can anyone point me in the right direction to find the rest of them?

I'm trying to figure out how to do firstInitialLastName@domain.com.

thanks!

Variables:
%s : Surname (last name)
%g : Given name (first name)
%i : Middle initial  
%d : Display name
%m : Exchange 2003 alias  
You can put a number in front of any of the these strings to define how many characters of the string should be used
Hence your solution would be : %1g%s@domain.com
