Remove AD domain address for Exchange users

Hi all,

We have an AD 2019 with Exchange 2019 CU11.
All of our users have a legacy email address formatted as sAMAccountName@keyman .local which is not their default SMTP address of course.

I guess this email address is not related with UPN (which is same formatted) and I want to be sure I can remove email address policy related to this legacy format without impact.

Thank you.
Have a good day.
