how are your accounts configured within AD? right click and rename usually does the trick

The rename field worked for viewing users in Active Directory but what about the address book for users in outlook.  im in an exchange 2003 environment.  like i said. some of the users show up last name first name then some show up first name last name in the outlook address book.  again this is the global list from exchange.  how can i edit this?
