Description (partial)

If you create a distribution list in Unity Connection that has spaces in the name those spaces will be replaced by underscore in the SMTP address.

Example: Alias you create in DL might be 'Cisco Test for Today'. The SMTP address will then be 'Cisco_Test_for_Today@domain'

The idea is you cannot see on the webpage what the SMTP address will be. The only way you can see it is by looking at the table in Unity Connection using something like Data Link Explorer.

Since you don't know underscores exist in the SMTP name this might prevent you from finding the SMTP address using something like VMO.
