Changing Pre-Windows 2000 Username

I have a client that has been using an email address of service@company.com for years.

I just moved them onto SBS2011 using Exchange 2010. When I go to create a 'service' email address, I get an error saying that the username exists in pre-windows 2000.
Can I remove this?
Where do I find it so that I can remove it?

you can search through active directory to find the email address in question:

This should point you in the right direction

C:\Windows\system32>setspn -l service
FindDomainForAccount: Call to DsGetDcNameWithAccountW failed with return value
0x00000525
Could not find account service

I looked at the .csv file. I have 8 users that I have created and this file has entries on more than 310 lines. Service must be a popular word (it is also in services)
What field would this information be in?

Service is a BUILT IN ACCOUNT

You can NOT delete it or RENAME it

Is there a way that I can set up a Service@company.com email account? Exchange says that I can't because it already exists.
