    username change (Outlook 2000)

    I have a user who got married and I need to now change her name for her outlook acct. I am guessing I do this in the Exchange server, can somebody tell me how? Is there more than 1 way? <img src=/S/blackhole.gif border=0 alt=blackhole width=15 height=15>

    here is only one way - but that way depends on the exchange server and if Win2k AD is used.

    it needs changes either in the Exchange manager (5.5, no ad) or AD users and computers.

    The exchange server is ver 5.5, running on WINNT server, no AD. So, what is the way?

    Not to be blunt, but maybe you should have your Exchange admin. do this. You probably do not have the rights. And name changes can involve a lot of steps in both the user manager and in Exchange Administrator.

    That was pretty blunt. We have no "exchange admin", and as far as I know, having system admin rights will be sufficient to take care of this task. You always do so much assuming? If you can help with my post I would appreciate it.

    i don't have ex5.5 installed so i'm going from memory and don't rember the exact steps, but this should be close enough to help you find it.

    open the exchange admin program on the server.
    locate the users mailbox entry - one of the menus might take you right to the user containers or expand the tree on the left until you find the user
    right click and choose properties or use the properties button on the toolbar to open the property sheet
    the display name should be on the first dialog sheet. change it and save.
