Hey everybody,

The naming convention on our mailserver is First initial then full last name for login IDs. That is, John Doe would be jdoe<_a.t_>domain, Arnold Schwarzenegger would be aschw...well, you get the idea.

Anyway, one of my users got married and is now changing her last name. I can add an alias for a new username for her, but it doesn't solve the problem of the proper reply-to address appearing when she replies to messages. I cannot figure out how to migrate a user's folders to a new username.

I have tried creating a new user and copying the old username mail folders to the new location. This works for Webmail but gives KOFF fits, to the point where I can't open the default mail store.

Is there any way to do this cleanly without exporting all old emails and then importing them back through Outlook?

Please let me know.

This is what I did. It was a bit of a pain.

Stop KMS.

Delete the existing user but do not delete their mail store.

Navigate to where the user's mail directory is stored, and change the directory containing their mail to the new name.

Start KMS. Create a new user account with their name.

if you're using KOFF I think you'll need to create a new profile.
