Change name in AD and Exchange 2010

One of the staff at my work place has recently got married and changed her name from Margaret Green   to Margaret Smith.  What is the best way to change her Windows domain login from mgreen to msmith and her email address from mgreen@mywork.com.au    to msmith@mywork.com.au.  After the name change has taken place she wants mail that is sent to her old email address to be forwarded to her new email address.

We use Outlook 2010 clients,   Exchange 2010 and Windows 2008 Server

Change the logon and display name in ADUC. I would also create another SMTP address reflecting msmith@mywork.com.au and make it the primary while leaving the other address as a secondary. This will prevent bounces in the event that people cached the old contact.

Rename Account name as in log on and display name etc.

Create new email address for new name and set as primary


also add an alias with new married name and set that as default in exchange 2010
