A user has informed me that their account name is wrong and has requested it to be changed. from  user.one@domain.com to user.on@domain.com (example of course). How do I accomplish this with losing account data?

In exchange 2003  Go to Active Directory Users and Computers.  Right click the user and rename.  A box will appear to ask you to update all user parameters.  If recipient update services are running it will change the E-Mail alias for you or you can go to the account properties under E-Mail address and update them manually.  Make sure the AD users and computers has the exchange tools installed.
