Mailbox Name Change ok?

Mailbox Name Change ok?

Mailbox Name Change ok?

It's been a while but I seem to remember being told to NEVER change the name on a mailbox but to out it and rebuilt it to prevent data corruption.
We will be migrating to Avaya Red/Avaya Messaging soon and my engineers asked me to be sure that the names on the stations and the mailbox names match.
Since we are not running reporter, is there any issue with me changing the names on the mailboxes to prepare for migration in a few months?
Thank you for any replies.

RE: Mailbox Name Change ok?

I still wouldn't just change the names. I've seen too many issues caused by doing that to ever want to see it done again.

Either out it and rebuild it with the correct name or create a spreadsheet that cross references the old name to the proper name needed on the new system. Not sure what you will be moving them to on Red but I doubt there's a decent utility for importing from Blue anyhow that would do much more than create a new mailbox from a csv file.

Thank you, Wanebo - that was the way I was thinking too. Happy New Year to you!!!
