Create a second email address - Exchange 2010

My users (win2008 network) have their Exchange 2010 SMTP email addresses created automatically in the format:
Username@domainname.com

Can I use an Email address policy to create a second address in the format:
first 2 letters of username + firstname + lastname

Thanks for any ideas.

You can create as many as you like (MojoTech is 100% correct).
To create the correct Address Policy, you can use the following variables:
%g  = givenName.
%s  = sn (Last name).  
%4s = means first four letters of sn.
%d  = displayname.
%m  = Exchange alias.
So to achieve what you need, you need to use %2m%g%s although I am not 100% sure what you mean by username.

So for alan bates

%1g.%1s@domain.com  translates to = a.b@domain.com
