The Name Change – Life After Marriage …
Somebody got married and changed her last name. MarriedWoman also wants to keep her original email address so she doesn’t loose contacts.
After performing a normal name change in NDS and GroupWise, add an alias.
1. Go to the Properties of “MarriedWoman”.
Figure 1 – Properties of MarriedWoman
2. On the GroupWise tab, select Gateway Aliases and click Add.

Now the MarriedWoman can still receive email for SingleWoman, although this might not be good for MarriedMan. 😉
