Placeholders in Address Generation Rules

 

Topic Last Modified: 2006-11-29

You can use placeholders in your e-mail address generation rules. For example, if you want to change from the default address format of <User Logon Name>@<Domain Name> to an address format of <First Name>.<Last Name>@<Domain Name> (for example, Ted.Bremer@contoso.com), you must use placeholders for the variable information, such as first and last names.

Select the entry for SMTP addresses on the E-Mail Addresses tab, click Edit, and, under Address, add %g.%s to the beginning of the address definition (for example, %g.%s@contoso.com).

NOTES-type proxy address generation rules do not allow you to specify how many characters to use to produce an address such as tedb@contoso.com, which you can for other proxy address types.

The table below lists the possible placeholders in address generation rules.
