Were using Windows 2k3 and Active Directory 2003 with Exchange 2003.  What happens when someone gets married and changes name.

For example

Shelly Allen
 
goes to

Shelly Bradley

I can make a new user, or change the display information.  I know this.  But they have been working for about a year and have email.   Active and Exchange are sinked up.  I want the new user, new name to be able to login to their pc and have all their all email.  Is this possible. I see a copy button on the user name in both exchange and active.  I'm not sure where to start.

Ask if you need any more information but Im sure that people do this all the time, I've just never heard of being able to copy their whole email profile.  Thank you to any who read.

Right click the user in ADUC and select Rename.  Type in the new name and it will load a Rename user Dialog.

It will take care of almost everthing.  If you have naming standards for userid (first initial last name) and this will do that.  The user will have to login with the User Login name.

You might want to change her email address bases on her new name.  You can change the email addres in ADUC as well in the Gerenal tab under email.  So she can still receive email with her old email address you can setup a exchange alias.  In ADUC load the E-mail addresses tab and select New and add a SMTP address of her old email name.  

This should provide you with what you need.
