    It is doable. If I remember rightly you have to deassign the mailbox from the old account, duplicate it, delete the old mailbox, rename the duplicated one, reassign to the new account. Hope that helps.

    Remove the account from EMC, this will delete both the AD and mailbox. - http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/...007-Part2.html

    Then, when you create a new AD account, re-connect the mailbox to the new AD account - How to Connect a Mailbox: Exchange 2007 Help
