I have a customer that has an employee that got re-married her the NT login name in, old name is hgouin.  

I set up a new email hbyrdduncan@acb.com.  The employees does not want to use her old NT name for the obvoius reason.  Can I re-name the NT account to hbyrdduncan the same as her email with out messing up her email account.  Is there some special consideration due to SBS do I have to use the Wizzard.

The customer is using winodws 2008 SBS edition

Thanks,

Rick

Yes.. in Active Directory Users and Computers, right click on her use account and select Rename.

Now if you are using a user folder on a server or even her user folder on the local machine will still have her old username.  The only easy way to fix that is to backup her mailbox.. delete her user account and recreate it.. but for visual purposes the rename above will do just fine.
