Problem

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.

Solution

After performing a normal name change in NDS and GroupWise, add an alias.

1. Go to the Properties of “MarriedWoman”.

Click to view.

2. On the GroupWise tab, select Gateway Aliases and click Add.

4. Select the Domain and Gateway Alias Type, which is probably your GWIA or SMTP gateway.

5. Add the old email address – “SingleWoman@Somewhere.Something”

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