Crosslinked usernames in AD / Sharepoint

Hi, hope someone has a pointer here...

I have inherited a SBS 2003 SP2 running Sharepoint, Exchange and a MSSQL backend. The admin had been renaming users (ug), rather then using the ADUC and copying existing users to clone them.

Problem:  When adding users for Sharepoint pages a situation now exists where I add the user by entering  the correct email address and the user added but the display name is that of the previous incarnation of this account. The uses subsequent posting are also identified as the old account name.
I have been thru ADUC and the AD with ADSI edit and can find no instances of crosslinking.

Where can I resolve this crosslinking?

TIA, MM

What OU are your users in?
The change user details wizard will only work properly if users were created with the add user wizard and as such will and should be in the SBS OU.
If users were created directly in AD you can get a few minor problems.
Hope that helps,
Olaf

Hi,
I have exactly this issue with a renamed user - their sharepoint posting appear to emanate from the original names user (Sue was renamed to Mary but sharepoint items added by Mary appear to be posted by Sue).
Can you tell me exactly how you fixed your issue?
