I have a user whose name changed some time ago.  They've just been migrated from Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2010 and now the Mailbox shows up as their old Surname.
I've checked AD and this old Surname isn't mentioned anywhere that i can see.  All the display named say the new Surname.

Where do i look to change it?!

One thing I can think of, if you use Powershell / powergui with Quest Active Directory cmdlets, you can run
get-qadUser -samaccountname <username> -includeallproperties | format-list * > C:\UserProperties.txt

then open the text file and search for the old name, you should be able to tell where it is stored... unless someone here knows off the top of their head what attribute is being used.

The alias on the account does look like it's related to the old name.  Can I just change the alias or is that going to mess things up?
