Internet Email Naming Standard

By leon_guerrero ·
I would like to implement the following email naming standard for our company:

firstname.lastname@debtco.com

Is this a popular naming standard for email? Management wants proof that its a good standard and has no issues. What are the pros andcons of this naming convention?

Could you please point me in the right direction for articles or information that will help me with this issue. I would like to present the info. to the managers.

Right now they want to use email names like egogue001@debtco.com...

Thanks

One minor/major problem is women. I don't have any good suggestions, but it's a pain to deal with marriage /divorce/ hyphen /no hyphen/ "It's Jr. III, please)

Hi,

Popular? Yes. Both my previous companies used this standard but I agree with DKlippert's comments above.

Name changes are your bane!

The other issue we dealt with was that there are a surprisingly large number of - in our case - mike williams out there.

We had issues where mail was sent to the wrong Mike Williams or Michael Williams or MikeJ Williams...

Its a good, intuitive standard, though.

Cheers,
Tim.
