Hi,

I have a mailbox for a user called Sophie that contains a calendar which is shared with everyone else in the company. Sophie has just left and Ella is going to replace her.

I am trying to figure out the most efficient method of making the shared calendar owned by Ella.

I thought about exporting all entries to a PST and then importing them into a new calendar in Ella' mailbox, Then sharing the calendar with everyone again. However, this will be time consuming as the calendar is also viewed on everyone's Blackberry's.

I have a couple of questions.

1. If I change the account name for Sophie to Ella in Exchange/AD, will the calendar shares still work?

2. If not, can you recommend a more effective way of making this change?

I am using Outlook 2007 with Exchange 2003.

Thanks,

Sam

Hi,

If you change alias name of the Sophie mailbox then there will not be any impact and you can do this using following method-

To change the Exchange alias and mailbox name on a user account:
1. In Exchange Management Console, expand the Recipient Configuration node and then select the related Mailbox node.
2. Double-click the mailbox entry for the user with which you want to work.
3. On the General tab, the first text box sets the mailbox name. Change this text box if you’d like the mailbox to have a different display name.
4. The Alias text box sets the Exchange alias. If you’d like to assign a new alias, enter the new Exchange alias in this text box. Click OK.

I would recommend you before changing alias create new mailbox and try to change new mailbox alias and check the impact.

Regards,
Arjun
