If exchange client is installed open it up and it will let you right click on the folders and rename them, then in outlook it will show the new names. Outlook itself will not let you rename the default folders.

Some how the users have changed the default folder. The inbox is showing up as some other name and will not allow me to change it back.

This is from Microsoft Tech Support article: Q156982

Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type Outlook.exe, a space, and the command-line switch.
Example: Outlook.exe /ResetFolders
Click OK.

Command-Line Switch Purpose
/ResetFolders Restores missing folders for the default delivery location.

Outlook 2000 has no mechanism for renaming the Inbox. You'll need to find a copy of the Exchange client called Exchng32.exe (one came with Exchange Server 5.0) and use that to open the users mail folder. Then you can reset the Inbox name. Additionaldetails are in http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q198/4/69.ASP

Renaming can happen when you delete appointments. See http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q249/7/50.ASP
