How to change Exchange 2003 mailbox - name?

By Ron-Tech ·
We have several AD Users that have generic login names because of the turn over. Ie. Admin01... So the AD User Object stays the same, but the display name and such changes.

We use the existing Exchange mailbox so that the old mail is still accessible to the new employee as the job is related...

The new employees e-mail address is associated with their name, but within Outlook the "Mailbox - Mailbox Name" always displays the original user of the mailbox, not the new employees user name.

Is there a way to change this Mailbox name?

Outlook profile...

Guess I found the answer to my own questions, but... After you make all the changes within ADUC it does not flow down into the Outlook mail profile on the PC. If you exit Outlool and goin into Control Panel --> Mail and setup a new profile it will use the proper mailbox / display name for the "Mailbox - Mailbox name".

you could use an alias

but you would have to change it every time the temp employee leaves and a new one takes their place using that mailbox.
