Back in the day, GroupWise would automatically substitute an “_” underscore for any first/last with spaces in it e.g. First of “John Do” with last name of “Re Me” - GroupWise would then accept John_Do_Re_Me@ and John_Do.RE_Me@ assuming you have first.last@ enabled. The first_last@ is something the GWIA has always accepted even though it’s not an option in C1/Admin.

I’m assuming it still does the same.
