Theres a couple articles about the need to fix aliases. It looks in my testing of Exchange 2007 and 2010 this is one of the migration steps that I will have to take. Are there any adverse effects to changing aliases on public folders, distribution lists, or mailboxes? Thanks

You must remove all the leading and trailing spaces from Exchange 2000/2003 user names, group names, and Public Folder names prior to migrating them to Exchange 2007 or Exchange 2010. Previous versions of Exchange and Outlook would let you create these objects, usually by accident. Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2010 have strict conformance rules that will not allow this, so you'll have to fix it before the objects are migrated

Hiya,

You should be fine to change the aliases. Clients use the SMTP proxy addresses or cache the LegacyExchangeDN, and changing those causes the most problems.
