Good day all

Here is my dilemma.  I just installed Exchange 2010 and moved my mailboxes without issue.  But I noticed that my email address has gone from FirstnameLastname@domain to FirstnameLastnameinitial@domain.  I realized this when people starting noticing that when getting reply messages they saw the email difference.  I was able to change the reply message within the properties of the mailbox and set the original email to set as reply.  Unfortunately, our configuration is not one on the policy list so I could not create a new policy to change everyone at a time; and it won't let me edit a legacy policy.  But I also noticed that this does not change when I am sending an email; the email address shows up as the firstnamelastnameinitial@domain.  Currently people haven't seem to notice, but I have and they are going to want it fixed.  I don't see anywhere this can be changed.  Can anyone help?
