A person gets married and changes the last name.  This includes the profile and the mailbox name.  I do know how to change the mailbox name.  The first time I went in and changed the profile name, the user was unable to receive mail.  I had changed the enitre profile (including email addresses) to reflect the new name.

If I read into your proposed fix correctly, I am to setup a new user with the new name.  I then give that new user access rights to the original profile mailbox, contact list, calendar, and contact list in Public Folders.  There is no name change procedure that will perform these steps as an administrative function?

Come on you are just being lazy. Just add a new profile adding the personal folder/Outlook Address book/Personal Address Book/Exchange Server and configure as needed!

Let's just say that thisis the first and last time I will use this service.  I am not a lazy person.  I've just moved into an Exchange environment from a Lotus Notes environment.  We had an integrator build our systems and then leave.  We are forced to learn on the job and typical of Microsoft the documentation leaves much to be desired.

Thanks for the sarcasm.
