  • Last name first name (smith.john)

  • Last name initial and first name (sjohn)

  • Last name and first name initial (smithj)

E-mail address domain

Use this box to select the e-mail address domain to which this e-mail address policy applies. You can also create additional e-mail address policies if your organization receives mail for multiple domains, or if your default domain is used strictly for internal purposes and you use a different external mail domain.
