Add a Rename function for an NSF file

Renaming a user is an already existing function but it doesn't change the mailbox filename nor the location documents.

    "Why not use a different file name at first hand that is never changing, e.g. employeeID, or a random number??"

    Well, that isn't a bad idea but ironically you would need this rename function for implementing it now.

    I would like to have it too. Shortname still is the default and when people marry they sometimes still change their last name. Sometimes a user asks for their webmail url, keeping the filenames in sync helps for consistency.

    You want the file name on disk to be changed if the user is deleted? Why ?

    User rename is a pain, admin is not in control of setting ACL-Advanced, Modify All Names(reader/Author) fields. When user is deleted, not always we whant users to be removed from Names field, but we want it to be renamed when surname changed.

    Yes, you're right, that's a good idea. But I need a renaming function to change the filenames and the location documents for all the mailfiles created in my company in the last 20 (25 ?) years.

    The file name does not have to correspond with the user name of the owner. Why not use a different file name at first hand that is never changing, e.g. employeeID, or a random number??
