Remove underscore out of Exchange Alias

When we first setup our Exchange server we had setup users with an underscore between the first initial last name.(j_doe).  I have a script that removes the underscore off of the user account, but is there a way to remove the underscore out of the alias portion of Active Directory?

Edit the email address policy with the setting you need and click "ok" when it prompt asking whether you want to apply it to all users.

I don't believe that will remove an underscore off of someones account though under the Exchange General tab, will it?

The above will change the alias of the email address.
But, changing the AD account will need another script.

Well when you create an Exchange 2007 policy, it will grab the current alias which has the underscore, which I want to change first before creating the policy.

In the email address policy, you can select any format (which is supported), like firstname.lastname, lastname.firstname etc. It is not dependent on the alias.

You can do first initial last name@domain.com by editing the email address policy in exchange 2007. It's the third option in the edit policy window. Have a look.
