Swedish characters in Email Address Policies

This is a bit old but I still get questions about it. To prevent Exchange from replacing Swedish characters åäö with things like ae you can add the following to the SMTP addresses:


This changes åäö to aao and from uppercase to lowercase. In this example I use g and s to fetch givenname and surname.

You can user this method to replace any character, not just åäö. In %råa, the %r represents replace and the next character å will be replaced by a. There is a number of different methods available, see this link for more information: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/285136
