We have a new user who has the same name as an old user. Is there anyway to change the name on the old user's email so we can keep it, but free this name up to attach to a new user/mailbox?

Thank you for your question about user ids. I'm not sure exactly which kind of user id you mean. If you are talking about a username for an email address, you can edit the original and create another one. If you are talking about a cPanel username you would need reseller or root privileges. If you have some more information about what exactly you are trying to accomplish feel free to expand on this topic.
