How to change display name of primary mailbox in Outlook 2010 exchange account?

We have some exchange accounts from multiple domains in one Outlook 2010.
We want to change the display name of the primary mailbox.
Any simple way to change it without affect existing settings?

If need to remove the mailbox and setup again, Outlook prompts need to remove all existing accounts first, due to primary mailbox.

1 Solution
1. You just rename the account and change the display name in Active Directory. But do not change the Alias or any other settings. Wait for the changes to take place.
2. Go to Control Panel->Mail-> Open your existing Outlook Profile and only remove the Exchange Account and re-add it again.
Note : Do not remove the Data files or any other settings.

You can try going into control panel --> mail then open your outlook profile --> exchange account settings
Where you see the name underlined, put a space on the end and press ' check name' = confirm the name has changed then next, next, finish. go back into Outlook and confirm the name has changed
