You do not need to create a new account in Active Directory and re-attach the mailbox to the new account. You can simply change the Name. DisplayName, sAMAccountName, properties in Active Directory and this will update the users account. You can then also change the Alias Name in Exchange Management Console as well.

Based on those changes your EAP (Email Address Policy) should also update the email address to reflect the new name.

The above would be the easiest method.

If you are set on creating a new AD Account and re-attaching the mailbox you can have a look at this open question that I have already posted on. This method can be done but is not necessary.

Why don't you rename current AD account to reflect the changes, I don't see any reason for creating new Id and attaching old mailbox. If still you can to create new ID, better to export and import data into mailbox.
