Does anyone know of a company that has been sued for it's email
username policies?  For example, if a company is using
firstname at company.com for their email address and there is a conflict
of first names, can the company require users to either use a
different first name, a variant of their first name or an alias?

I am suggesting that our company use firstname.lastname at company.com
but I am getting a lot of resistance.

I've asked our CEO to verify the policy with our lawyers so we don't
run afoul of any discrimination laws , but I was hoping someone might
be able to point me to a web site with some info on this topic.

Thanks,
