  • Changing users name

    I have changed a users name in the AD users and Computers, and everything seems okay, however, when i go to send a email to that user, i start to type the name and after 2 initials the new name appears, however in chevron brackets is the old name, where is this stored so i can change it as well, also in the GAL under the user, the entry under the email address is the old name. i assume these are connected.

    any idea how to change these as well?

    Regards

    dont panic, found out myself, you need to go to the adsi edit snap in and edit the "legacyexchangeDN" entry which is set to th eoriginal email address, this changes both occurances

      Be aware though that changing that value means that anyone internally will be unable to reply to old email that the user has sent - that value (the bit in the < >) is how Exchange routes the email.
