Just go in to exchange and right click and go to properties, you can create the new addresses and choose the primary and also change alias and surname details from within there.

HI Rabihhaj,

if you want to change the display name as well, In Active Directory Users and Computers (For Exchange) right-click the user, and select "Rename". Follow the wizard. When that's complete, double-click the user, click on the "Email Addresses" tab, add the new address, add new Email Address as required, as you want to keep old email ID as well hence, you can keep any of them as primary (but as user requested to keep new email ID as her default) click new Address, and select "Set as Primary". now mails will be delivered to her ID even if the when the mail is sent to any of her Email ID...

thanks
