sbs2011.

Employee "A" left and now with the new employee "B" We want to keep the "domain user setup" with the same login name/ Domain Profile . They just want to change the password and email address. BUT they still want to keep the old mailbox from employee "A" and access it if necessary.

1. Is it possible to creat a new user , assign employee "A" mailbox to that new user for access.  

2. is it possible to then assign a new mailbox to the original "A user" profile.

Thank you

I'm getting an error:  Some controls are not valid- the propty can't be empty

It's the alias:    AM I creating this or is it exist already?

For the Existing User (employee A) you need to disconnect their mailbox, from the Exchange Management Console "disable" the mailbox.

Create a new User (Employee B), go to the Disconnected Mailboxes in the Exchange Management Console re-connect the mailbox to employee B now. You can then create a new mailbox for Employee A now that the old mailbox is no longer connected.

The Display Name is one of many places where the name is located. You can go into the account properties in Active Directory and change the First/Last Name and also the CN Name. You can then go into ECM and change the Alias in there as well.
