How do I configure the default short name in exchange 2010?


I'm configuring an Exchange 2010 server.  I have the proper email address setup so that when a mailbox is created for an existing active directory user the email address is automatically formatted the way we want.

Unfortunetly when I create the mail boxes the default short name is firstnamelastname.  I would like the default short name to be firstname.lastname.

Is there a way to do this? I want to create 150 accounts all at once.

Exchange Management Console -->  Org Config -->  Hub Transport -->  Email Address Policy...create new or edit...I believe in this wizard when you get the Email Addresses the second choice down should be firstname.lastname

When you create or edit the policy.    You need to have %g.%s    Try that then apply this should work
