How do I change my email address in MS Exchange? I need to change from my email@example.com to a firstname.lastname@example.org. I simply am not able to find this setting in my outlook exchange options.
Add new SMTP address and make it your primary (recommended)
Open Active Directory Users and Computers mmc
Locate your AD account and right click-->Properties
Click on the "Email Addresses" tab.
Add the new email address in the same format as your existing email addresses. Leave the old address in place.
Change the default (set as primary) address to the new one.
By doing this, any email sent in on the old address will still be delivered, but all new email will go out with the new address.
--uncheck auto update email addresses based on recipient policy, or your primary will be switched back to the alias generated address
