Is it possible to rename a user (mailbox)?
Question asked by Joe Burkhead - July 1, 2015 at 10:40 AM
Seems we often face the issue of an employee changing her name when getting married...common thing. However, it does not seem that I can change the user name (and email address) to the new name. I have to create an alias for that person or create a new account, which then loses all of the prior account's stored items. To complicate things, our users mostly are set to Active Directory authentication. I change their user account name in Active Directory, then the SmarterMail account loses its connection to AD.
Why not allow me to reset the user name?

Hey Joe,
Try out the steps here to Rename a User in SmarterMail. It's done on the backend but should still accomplish what you're looking for.
