What is the easiest way to change an Active Directory user/login/file permissions from "janedoe" to "janesmith" since Jane got married and her new last name is Smith ?

Hey,

You can simply rename the account in almost all cases. The user profile will still link in, as will any Exchange mailbox.

If any failures are likely it's from third party systems that hook in rather than within AD itself.

Rename...just right click the user in Active Directory Computers and Users and rename...then open the properties and select account and you can change from jdoe to jsmith

If you have exchange you can add the email address for the new name.
