Exchange 2007 server.
For mailboxes, I identify a user if it is "Consultant" in CustomAttrinute4 fields. For users who are "Consultant" I want to create an email address policies as follows:
First name.Last name.CustomAttribute4.

So if a user named "Peter Smith" and is "Consultant" in the CustomAttribute4, the SMTP address is:
Peter.Smith.Consultant@fonc.gov.ca

Is this possible?

This is possible. Typically when you create an email address policy you usually reference it to an Accepted domain (to ensure mail is routed properly). If you do not have an accepted domain for this you will need to create a Custom Address referencing the Email Address and Email Type SMTP, POP, IMAP etc.

Make sure that this EAP has a higher priority than your Default Policy which is the lowest.

- create the accepted domain (if required)
- create the EAP, assigning the accepted domain (or creating a custom address)
- modify the consultants accounts referencing the CustomAttribute4 with the same attribute in your EAP settings
- EAP will apply the new email address automatically

I have a accepted domain. But, your solution is not what I want.

The SMTP address that I want is:

Peter.Smith.Consultant@fonc.gov.ca

That is fine. You just need to create a Custom Address adding in the address format you want see screenshots below.

That should do it.

Very good solution!

But, It is possible that this new address in this policy is "Set as Reply" addresse by default?

Yes it will be for any users with the CustomAttribute4 set to "consultant". That is how EAP's work. Any accounts that differ from this will get the default policy.
