Setting up multiple addresses

This is really a general question
When we have users whose name changes due to marriage or divorce what is the best way to keep two address open during a certain period.
Our address format is Name.FirstName@domain.com
If I have a user whose email address was Doe.Jean@domain.com changing to Todd.Jean@domain.com Can I keep the two addresses active. I don't think nicknames work in this case. I tried testing and ConsoleOne wouldn't accept the ".".

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Re: Setting up multiple addresses

Hi,

I've just tested this on GW2012 SP2 and am unable to create a nickname with a "." in it.

Let me see what I can find out from the Novell folk for you.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley

while i don't have a 2012 system at hands right now: you shouldn't need to enter any dot in this scenario. let's assume your addressing rules allow last.first@domain.bla. let's further assume that the user has been renamed to jean todd, successfully receiving mail addressed to todd.jean@domain.com
just create a nickname, set "given name" to "jean" and "last name" to "doe". that's all about it. GW will consider doe.jean@domain.com a valid address as addressing rules do also apply to nicknames. just check the user in C1 -> groupwise -> internet addressing -> view email addresses

Re: Setting up multiple addresses

Hi

You are absolutely correct - I don't know why I didn't think of this, but thank you for posting the solution.

Just note that you do have to put a name into the Object ID field, but that could just be the CN of the user. If you go to Internet Addressing and look at the e-mail addresses the Surname.Firstname@domain.com does show up under the e-mail nicknames.
