Exchange 2013 Lowercase Email Address Policy RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to create an email address policy to create an email address a first.last@domain.com. I want the entire email address as lowercase. I know email address are not case sensitive for Exchange. Corporate wants the email addresses to match users business cards which are all lowercase.

    I used this command to try to get it to work, but it creates an email of First.Last@domain.com. Is there something different that needs to be done in Exchange 2013 compared to Exchange 2007/2010?

    Set-EmailAddressPolicy -Identity “Policy Name” -EnabledPrimarySMTPAddressTemplate

  • Myself, I'd write a PowerShell script and schedule it to run nightly to change all SMTP addresses to lower case.

  • Yes it works ! however for specific german name (with ü, ö, etc..) it doesn't work !

    example : Hans RÜST= hans.ruest@smtpdomain.ch 

    Do you know if we can substitute Ü by ue (and not UE) ?
