I have an end user that is receiving net send messages from Mexico.  They are sending to alopez.  Her computer name used to be alopez and i changed it to alizaralopezxp.  the messages stopped for a little while, but are starting again.  is there a reason why she is receiving net send messages that are intended for alopez (which should no longer be on the domain)?  Any help is greatly appreciated.  You can reach me at 714-545-0100 x2014 if you need anything further.
Thanks,
Kelly Alderman

in my mind, i heard such such a problem before, and it was solved by changing the wrong computer name left in the registry, but i am sorry that i can not recall the exact registry settings at the moment. i think you may try find it by yourself, just run regedit.exe and search for "alopez", change the name at corresponding location. for safe operation, you'd better do not change the name at once, please list all the locations that contain the specific string at here before finally change it.

hope it helps,

Open wins service on the domain controller and delete all references to alopez.

Tried to do as recommended.  I must not know how.  Her login name is alopez, would that be the reason why it's not stopping the messages from coming to her?  I was always under the impression that it was based off of the computer name.

The syntax is net send user/computer. If the computer was renamed, the message goes to user. If exists another computer with the name alopez, the message goes to both, computer and user. That's the way it is. Change the user name too.
