    Exchange/Outlook Rename Inbox?

    Locked

    by rcoolman ·

    Have a client that their tech person tells me his boss somehow managed to accidently rename Inbox in Outlook. They have their own Exchange 5.5 server. Supposedly the Inbox was renamed while attempting to delete an appointment and now the name of the appointment is the name of Inbox. It still works, but is there any way to fix it?

      Right click on the folder/box that should be named INBOX, and select properties, There will be a little text box that you can rename the box to INBOX, You said it is still working ok so that tells me nothing was changed in Exchange Administrator.Sounds like it just needs to be renamed. If his MAILBOX was deleted in Exchange Administrator his administrator would need to recreate his mailbox and assign it to his user account.

      We’ve seen this a few times on our network and my desktop folks say it’s the result of a known bug in Outlook.

      I’ve never been able to get Answer #1 to work. Even though the Inbox name appears on the properties page in an edit box, I’ve never been able to get it to change.

      The only fix I’ve heard of is to un-install and re-install Outlook. But that does seem a little brutish so I hope someone else has a better answer because I would like to know it also.

        It seems to be part of Exchange rather than Outlook. I think we could make a new mailbox, but the client doesn’t want to.
