Change Mailbox Name

By ssharp ·
After changing a mailbox name, I noticed that in the properties for this user, under the Advanced Tab, the Directory Name stays the same. I can not find how to change this field. How is this field changed or is it even necessary? Thanks.

Change Mailbox Name

Since this is a system location that is created by Exchange when the mailbox is created, you don't need to change this - as a matter of fact, you wouldn't want to because if you did, the mailbox would lose all its content. The only time this gets changed, or created actually, is if and when you create a new mailbox for a user. If you want for some reason for the directory name and user name to be the same, you have to create a new mailbox and move the user's old mailbox content to the new oneinstead of just changing the mailbox name. Hope this helps!
