I am wondering how some of you handle a name change where someone gets married, and wants a new email address reflecting this.


I know I can add an alias, but I was thinking more along the lines of a new account, forwarding the email from the old account for a time.


The big area I am not sure of is migrating the folders over.  I know I can set up both accounts on one machine, have the user manually migrate their folders over.  If I set one of the accounts to forward, how does this effect the folder listing in the mail client?  Will the folders disappear?  Is there a way to migrate all the folders over from the server side?


Thanks for any help thining this process through.
