I know it is the matter of minutes of copying an account and all group
membership comes with it automatically, but for reasons that are "not"
your concern I have to do it this way. It only took half an hour to
track it and thanks to a kind tip, ldifde helped to remember change the
X400 settings too. So I can "keep" doing this over and over in matter of


Fortunately or unfortunately I am not in the position to reply to your

It only takes a minute to create a new account and give them the same
group membership as the old account.  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.

Here is the scenario. 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?
