We are running Sharepoint 2007 here and I recently changed a number of details for one user's account in Active Directory (she changed her last name). I left her account name the same (lets say jsmith). So, she went from Jane Smith to Jane Jones, but her user account and login name is still jsmith.
Everywhere in Active Directory and windows-related stuff, her name is properly updated and displayed as Jane Jones. Sharepoint though, does not. In addition, we have a couple issue management tracker lists which she is part of, and she no longer receives the same email notifications she used to (in fact, as far as I can tell, she doesn't get any emails from Sharepoint).
How do I force Sharepoint to update its user list, and why does changing a user's active directory account seem to result in Sharepoint not sending the user emails anymore? Thanks.
