I changed my surname. When I used to write my signature manually, I start writing my first name, and it suggests automatically my surname. Now despite my Exchange account name was changed, it still suggests my old surname. How can I update it to reflect the new surname?

Synocus,
Does the surname autocomplete in applications besides Outlook? If so, it is being done using the AutoCorrect feature.

In Outlook 2010, you can edit the AutoCorrect entries by:
1) Open the File...Options menu item and go to the Mail tab
2) Click the Spelling and AutoCorrect button, then go to the Proofing tab
3) Click the AutoCorrect Options button, then go to the AutoCorrect tab
4) Find the first few letters that trigger the surname insertion, select it, then type in the new surname in the With field

Neither suggestion helped my case.

I suspect this may have something to do with the typical question that pops up when you first time start Outlook with a new profile. There if I remember correctly you specify your name and initials.

The settings for name and initials can be set in the File...Options menu on the General tab.

Other options with your name are set for each ISP account in the File...Info menu item using the Account Settings link, connecting to another Account settings link, then on the E-mail tab.
