Hello,

our company is planning on changing the email address format from lastnamefirstinitial.domain.com to first.last.domain.com. Is there a step by step guide on how to accomplish this and if this can be tested prior to implementing company wide. Exchange version is 2010 sp3.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

You can create a new email policy under Organization Configuration->Hub Transport->Email Address policies.

You can test this however you might have to provide a condition for the email address policy and create few test mailboxes which match that condition and check if the email address is updated. Follow the below technet article to understand more about email address policies.

The format that you can use for your domain would be %g.%s@domain.com
