New to Exchange.

I had created an account in AD and had named it Supply Account. When Exchange was installed a mailbox with the address SupplyAccount@... was created. I have been asked to change this to Supplies@... however supplies was a previously named AD account.

Can I change the address associated with a mailbox?

I right-click, choose "Edit", make the change and get he error "This command will clear the PrimarySMTPAddress property because the EmailAddressPolicyEnabled parameter is set to true. This action isn't allowed."

If I were to change the  EmailAddressPolicyEnabled parameter to false I assume this would work, but what are possible ramifications?
