Rename Exchange user account in Windows 2003 SBS and Exchange 2003

I have renamed a user in Windows 2003 SBS. However the old email name still shows up when I go to Exchange Manager and look at the mailbox. How do I change the email account name?

Here is our how-to:

Make sure you don't miss the specific Exchange based attributes in the x400 and the ALIAS that gives the default e-mail@ address.

Richard DanekeTrainerCommented:
Oh, but if we could take one step back.  SBS makes setup easy for a new user by using the wizard to add based an a template.  They get all the username/password settings and all the exchange settings.
However, if this is not correct for your situation, open Server Management, click on Users in the left pane and use the Change User Permissions wizard.

Restart the Microsift Exchange Information Store service or reboot the server and the name will change.
