I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Just correct it.  Treat it the same as if someone got married and changed their name.  You wouldn't want to create a new mailbox for that.

Hi Hasan Dervish,

When altering a person's mailbox, I always add the new address, and make it primary, in case they have already sent out mail with the incorrect spelling. (So people can still "reply" and the email get to them.)

Hope this helps!
