If you find the name you want to change in AD Users & Computers - what you see in the list in front of you is the name that people will see in their emails.  Right-Click the name you want to change and select Rename.  Change this to be what you want others to see and press enter.  Don't change anything on the next screen and that should sort you.

Forgot to mention - you will have to delete and re-create the Outlook profile too so that the changes are picked up.

No need to delete and recreate the profile - the change will be activate immediately. You just need to change the display name in AD.

However it may not be seen in the Address book for up to 48 hours.

Simon,
Whenever I have renamed a user the client still retains the name that it was setup with, not the new renamed details.  Does this change over time, or stay the same?  In my experience it seems to stay the same, which is why I suggested deleting and re-creating the profile.  It is not essential, more cosmetic.

If you are referring to the top of the tree in Outlook, then that should change. However it has no operational effect, compared to the impact of replacing the Outlook profile.

Thanks Simon,
I know that there is no impact with the wrong name in Outlook - as I said - it is purely cosmetic - I was just curious if it changed - don't ever think I have left it long enough to wait and see!
In terms of profile impact that you are referring to - what impact would this have and should this be avoided?
