    Exchange 2010 - Automatically Change Email Address When Account is Renamed

    Hi,

    Is there a way in Exchange so when an account is renamed Exchange automatically assigns the user a new email address based on the address policy?

    Thanks

    errr, assuming the 'automatically update email address based on email address policy' is checked in the user properties then it should do it

    I believe it's the default

    Is your policy set to apply immediately? it could just be a time related thing?

    Its <Surname><first initial> - all displays fine. I ran through the email address policy again and reapplied it and it fixed it. But why did i have to do it manually?

    Thanks

    if you have a date the new address yourself manually then you would have to make it primary yourself if exchange has stamped it then whatever is set in the eap will be the primary.
