SBS2003 - Mailbox rename problem

So you created a user, and then later realised the name was misspelt. No problem you renamed the user and change his / her name. But for some reason the email addreess keeps changing back to your original misspelt form. aaaargh.

Solution:

Export mail to PST
Delete mailbox
Create new mailbox with correct spelling.
Set Outlook up to connect to new mailbox
Import mail to PST.

Problem solved. No other solution is available that I am aware of.
