Yes but I would alias it to make sure he still receives reply on the old account.

better to open his mailbox account from the exchange management console and delete the SMTP address and keep the new one only because when you edit the alias it's creating a new SMTP address while keeping the old one.

so please delete the old from the SMTP address window on the mailbox properties

Do the following:

•Change the display name of the mailbox to the new  name.

•Add a secondary SMTP address reflecting the new  name -- but don't delete the 'old' SMTP address.

•Set the new SMTP address you added as the primary address.
The mailbox will then receive mail sent to the old address and the new address. The reply-to address will be set to the new address

you should delete the old one if the user wants that, as you said that he is still receiving on the old one, but you dont want that, so you should delete it
