Email address - block special characters?

    Question

  • Just been through a premium support issue where a 2013-2010 co-existence could not handle mailboxes with an ampersand (&) in either the alias and/or the email address. I'm sure I've seen this blocked as part of the email address policy but I've forgotten where and how. I know how to format- but not how to block. Is it possible? Never been a fan of special characters in email addresses- bad practice

  • The email address policy will stamp addresses based on what's in the policy. It isn't a "filter" in the sense that it has the power to block what an admin happens to stamp on an attribute.

    Perhaps just run a PowerShell script on a schedule that finds/replaces/reports matching instances?

  • Thanks Mike. I thought it might be wishful thinking
