Change a User Name in SBS 2003 on a domain

An employee recently left my company. She was handling the accounting and using Quick Books..
I simply want to change her user name to the new employee so that all programs and permissions are seamless
Changing the email address is easy...
Can I simply go into the users properties in server management and change the user name & email address

Thanks

if you want the new employee to have all the same rights, you can just copy the user.

You can just change the name, the normal and legacy log in, the password and the email, but a copy is faster.

Would I create a user in the server management console and use the old employee profile as a template for the new employee ?

You can use rename without problems, see the following for some straight forward instructions.:

Copy will work fine too (but would have issues if the security has noot been granted based on group membership)

if you want to cop, just right click on the old user and select copy, then proceed to change the details as required.

With SBS open the Server Management console, click on users, highlight the user name on the right and in the menu to the left choose "rename. This will rename the user account and all permissions will remain the same. You will also have to change the e-mail account e-mail address, or if you want to receive the old mail for the previous user, just add an address and make it the default.
