Hi,
Is there as easy way in AD of assigning mailbox name as firstname.surname@domain.com instead of a 6 digit code that users currently use to login (saMAccountName).
I have all fname and sname in AD and would like mailboxes to reflext that and not username.
Cheers G

This question doesn't make much sense at the moment. Can you explain a little differently. What is it that you want to do? You don't create mailboxces as firstname.surname@domain.com so where is it you want that format to appear?
