Use the Custom Address dialog box to configure the following custom e-mail address settings for your e-mail address policy. You can create custom SMTP e-mail address or custom non-SMTP e-mail address policies.

When creating a custom SMTP e-mail address, you can use the variables in the following table to specify alternate values for the local part of the e-mail address. The local part of an e-mail address is the name that appears before the at sign (@).

 

Variable Value

%g

Given name (first name)

%i

Middle initial

%s

Surname (last name)

%d

Display name

%m

Exchange alias

%xs

Uses the x number of letters of the surname. For example if x=2, the first two letters of the surname are used.

%xg

Uses the x number of letters of the given name. For example, if x=2, the first two letters of the given name are used.

  • Non-SMTP e-mail address. The following types of non-SMTP e-mail addresses are supported:
    • EX (Legacy DN Proxy Address Prefix DisplayName)
    • X.500
    • X.400
    • MSMail
    • CcMail
    • Lotus Notes
    • Novell GroupWise
    • EUM (Unified Messaging proxy address)
importantImportant:
In Exchange 2007, all non-SMTP e-mail addresses are considered custom addresses. Exchange 2007 does not provide unique dialog boxes or property pages for X.400, GroupWise, or Lotus Notes e-mail address types. If you add a non-SMTP custom e-mail address, you must have the appropriate dynamic-link library (DLL) files. If you do not provide the appropriate DLL files, you will not be able to create a customized e-mail address policy. The following error will be logged in Event Viewer: "The e-mail address description object in the Microsoft Exchange directory for the 'SADF' address type on 'i386' machines are missing."

E-mail type
  • Use this box to type the e-mail address type. The e-mail address type cannot exceed 9 characters.
  • The e-mail address type is the identifying proxy information for the e-mail address. Exchange uses this information to determine how to process the e-mail address.
