Change the Alias on the "Exchange General" tab.

Uncheck the box at the bottom of the email addresses tab ("Automatically
update e-mail addresses...").

Either one (or both) should work.

Subject: [exchangelist] Renamed user

I renamed a user in ADUC which appeared to go ok. The home directory was
altered and all seemed well......until it was noticed that the "new"
user had the old users e-mail address. I went back into the User details
and sure enough the e-mail address referred to the old user. I have
tried to set the primary e-mail address to the correct (new user)
address and remove the old e-mail address but after about a minute the
e-mail address is automatically set back to the original user. The
exchnage mailbox is seen as the new user and all other details appear
correct for the new user. Any idea's to assist me in resolving this isue
other thatn migrating the mailbox to a .pst and deleteing the user and
starting again ?
