Exchange 2010 email policy

This question is in regards to the email address policy in Exch 2010. I choose the first letter of the first name and last name as the email policy. So, i face problem when the usernames are duplicated. For example, John M. Smith will get the email address as JSmith. Jack J. Smith also gets the same address or append number 2 in the end. Is there any work around to avoid the number at the end and use Special condition to set the email address?

Thanks for the help.

What I do, and most others you will find, is to set it to use the ALIAS in the email policy instead of the firstname/lastname.  That way when you create a user you are asked for the ALIAS ALWAYS. You can do your sanity checks and then set the alias to be what suits you. JMSmith, JJSmith etc
