Changing email address in Exchange 2010

nachtmsk asked
Last Modified: 2018-02-02

If a user is currently  jsmith@mydomain.com and they get married and now want to be  jjones@mydomain.com, is changing it simple as going into the Email tab of the users properties in EMC and changing the address. It looks like it can be edited but it can't be that easy, can it?  I assume I'd need to also change something in AD. Othewise how would the system know how to log the person in? Or would AD login remain as jsmith@mydomain.com?
