Exchange - Mail -question

By qtravi ·
2) A user at your company recently got married and wants to update her network user ID and email address with her married name. The network is running Windows 2000 Server with Exchange 5.5. Describe and list the various changes that you would make to update her name - try to be specific on the settings modified. The user would also like to continue to receive internet email with her old address. How would you do that?

I see the homework questions are back. So how's the class going?
Are you passing?
Not drinking too much beer and chasing the co-eds and going to wild frat parties, and instead stuffing your head with wisdom and knowledge one would hope...

You failed to mention in your question if the network is an Active Directory Forest or a Windows NT 4.0 domain. Please specify which type, as the answer will vary greatly upon it.

In a Windows NT Domain:

User Manager lets you rename user accounts using the Rename option on the User menu. To do this, complete the following steps:

1. Select the account you want to rename in the main window of User Manager.

2. Choose Rename from the User menu and then enter the new account name when prompted.

You can change the first name, last name, display name, and alias of a user by using the Microsoft Exchange Server Administrator program. However, if you change a user's name in Microsoft Exchange Server and do not change the user's display name, when the user logs on to the mailbox by using Outlook, the old name of the mailbox is still displayed in Outlook. During the profile creation process, Outlook resolves the alias name that is specified in the Display Name box for the mailbox, and then uses that display name in the Outlook user interface.

Because this can lead to confusion, ensure that the mailbox is renamed in the Outlook user interface. The following procedure applies to Outlook 97, Outlook 98, and Outlook 2000. Either the user or an administrator can perform this procedure. Make sure that you perform this procedure after you have renamed the mailbox on the Exchange Server computer.

1. Log on to the computer that the user's Outlook profile is located on. Make sure that Outlook is not running.
2. Click the Start button, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
3. Double-click either Mail or Mail and Fax, as applicable.
4. Click Show Profiles.
5. Click the profile that you use to access that mailbox.
6. Click Properties, click Exchange Server, and then click Properties again.
7. Under Mailbox, type the new alias name.
8. Click Check Name.
9. The alias name is resolved to the new display name of the user.
10. Click Apply, and then click OK.

In Active Directory:

Use the MMC Users and Computers.
Find the user account.
Right click.
Choose Rename.
Input the required information and click OK when done.

Go to the Exchange 5.5 server and using Server Administrator, associate the renamed AD account with the mailbox.

Tell your professor, I want at least an A and a redheaded coed.
