Create an own E-Mail Adress Policy!?

Hello everybody,

In our company we use first letter of the first name and the first letter of the last name as e-mail address.


I can't find a rule which does that for me!? And I don't wan't to do each and every mail of this 60 mailboxes manually.

Is there a Powershell command!?

Thanks a lot

Create a new policy to do this.
you can find the policy under Organization Configuration --> Hub Transport in EMC
