    I had to change my Outlook account when my email was hacked. I've setup the new account, but the mailbox name is set to the old account - and apparently I CAN'T CHANGE IT - even using the MFCMAPI protocol. Microsoft just overwrites whatever custom name I set. Clearly this is a design flaw on Microsoft's part. One email account cannot possibly last forever - there are many reasons why people will abandon one account and establish a new one. Outlook 365 needs to provide a mechanism to reset the mailbox name!
