I see in this document:How to Configure Forms-Based Authentication for Outlook Web Access that when configuring a CAS server with forms-based authentication, and selecting "User Principal Name" as the sign-in format, that, "Users can access Outlook Web App by entering their primary e-mail address or by entering their UPN."
However, I'm finding that users can only log in using their UPN value. When I change a user with UPN value email@example.com to have a primary e-mail address of firstname.lastname@example.org he's still only able to log into OWA as email@example.com .
Is this a bug in the documentation, or in my implementation, or am I not understanding what is meant by the sentence in the linked doc?

Friday, February 26, 2010 7:53 PMNo, changing the UPN of the user account isn't really an option because their email address is different than their UPN. And I can't create UPN suffixes.
I'm really hoping the documentation was correct, as written.

I have tested on my lab, the issue is the same as you encountered. The primary email address should be the same value as the userPrincipalName. And from the article state:
If you specify the PrincipalName attribute, the User name field on the Outlook Web Access logon page requires a UPN address. This logon method works only for users whose UPN name is the same as their e-mail address.
It seems that the description on the previous article which you provided is not correct. I will confirm with Product Group and inform you if any update is avaiable.
