How to customise Exchange email addresses

If you have a recipient policy that generates non-unique email addresses in Exchange 2003 then the recipient update service will add numeric characters to make it unique.  For example if you have this as your email address:
%1g.%s@thefoleyhouse.co.uk

You'll get the following addresses:
k.foley@thefoleyhouse.co.uk
k.foley2@thefoleyhouse.co.uk
k.foley3@thefoleyhouse.co.uk

To control this you might want to take a look at KB article 285136:
