SBS 2003 user name change problem

This might be a stupid problem that I'm missing something small because I'm in a hurry but I changed a users name in AD and changed her email address in the Exchange tab as well and am having a problem with her account. She can login to her account with the new name but under her Outlook the mail box shows up under the old name. I tried recreating the Outlook profile and that seemed to work and show up as the new name once but if you close and reopen outlook it goes back to the old name. Also when she sends out email it goes out with the right new email address but the  'I don't know the correct term' displayname is still the wrong old name. how do I change that

Username and Displayname are 2 seperate things...

In ADUC right click on the user and select Rename - change the name and press enter - it pops up a dialog that allows you to rename the account and also the displayname...that should take care of it I think

Update Displayname in there and things should be ok

I tried that, it didn't change the outlook display or mailbox name
The mailbox name isn't relevant - it doesn't change and you can't change it...

Show me a screenshot of the displayname? I'm unsure if we are talking about the same thing...
Few other things...

You need to logout and back in to the client pc to ensure changes are updated...

Also it could be a timing thing, can take 10-15 minutes for Exchange to push the changes fully...
