Maybe is this an idée:

Login names will be assigned using the following techniques to handle 
duplicates:

First logon ID choice:  FirstName.LastName@xxxxxxx      
                                (for example: Theodore.Antonissen@xxxxxxx)

If the first logon ID is taken then try...
Second logon ID choice: FirstName.MI.LastName@xxxxxxx   
                                (for example: Theodore.G.Antonissen@xxxxxxx)

If the second logon ID is taken try...
Third logon ID choice:  NickName.LastName@xxxxxxx
                                (for example: Ted.Antonissen@xxxxxxx)
If the third logon ID is taken try...

Fourth logon ID choice: NickName.MI.LastName@xxxxxxx
                                (for example: Ted.G.Antonissen@xxxxxxx)

This set should provide enough combinations to accommodate the Xxx Community.

You could classify staff and determine account settings that way i.e. senior
staff get the standard first initial, last name: jsmith , new staff get
first initial.last name j.smith etc, may combinations to choose from, or do
it by department/job roles.
j.smith
smith.j
j.a.smith
joe.smith
smith.jow
jasmith
jsmith
smithj
joesmith
smithjoe
joeasmith

Those were just a few combinations you can use. You could also setup
subdomains for email and even for security purposes enable the use of
special UPNs for domain logon. All this would require would be to create MX
records pointing to your mailservers for the new subdomains, after that,
it's just a matter of setting up rules for email generation, this would take
a considerable effort to pull off and somewhat of a transition time, but it
would probably make everyone's life easier and provide for future growth.

Hope this helps - Marc

We go to adding additional letters in the first name

4 Joe A Smith's, hired at different times First hire: jsmith Second hire:
jasmith Third hire: josmith Fourth Hire: joesmith (or joasmith)

I've never had more then 3 users with the same first, middle, and last name
so far, but only about 1300 users.

Hi all,

Question of the day:

We have more than 3500 users in our AD, and about 2500 mailboxes. We use the
first name initial/last name naming scheme

We ran through some issues, where we have more than 4 users with the same
first/middle/last name.

 So we started using numbers to give them the uniqueness that the system
requires, but the boss didn't like it and have assigned me the task of
figuring out the best way, and because you guys are experts at what you do,
I thought that you may help me get this task done at best.

I welcome all ideas and any ideas and I appreciate any comments (Nicely
Please).

Thanks to all in advance
