Agree, renaming accounts is really not best practice given you can achieve the same results using proper method.

At first glance I thought you were the more popular audio company with the same sounding name, but still, if your a publicly traded company you have to adhere to Sarbanes-Oxley guidelines. One of the guidelines is auditing/accountability, by renaming an account you violate that. Even if your just a mom and pop shop make it easy on yourself, grant all permissions via group membership and give each individual a personal account that they are 100% responsible for.

User1 has a mailbox and when user2 comes to the job replacing her, all I did was renaming the active directory account so automatically she can login with same permission. Now the problem is when people send email in outlook, the cached name shows user2 ( user1). I tried deleting the cache file and recreating a new one with no luck. Old name is stuck somewhere in account. Anyone knows how to remove it?
