    Apparently I don't know what I am doing.

    I have a user who's username ended up being very close to that of the head of our HR department. Because of this, people aren't paying attention and are sending sensitive HR information to this user. We decided the best way to fix this was to rename the user. So, in AD, I changed:

    The users name as is listed in AD Users and Groups
    The Display Name (under General Tab)
    The logon name (under account tab)
    Alias (under Exchange General)
    and everything under Email Addresses

    It is not that this didn't work. The user can now log on as their new user account. The email transferred over fine and if I email the new email account it goes right through. Also, the old user account can no longer log in. However, the one problem that I am having is that the old email account still works and the users old name still shows up in the GAL. I have no idea how to fix these two problems. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Actually, nevermind folks. I think I just didnt give it enough time to populate. The name in the GAL has changed now.

    Thanks.
