Method to change existing Outlook 2002 User Profiles in mass to new Exchange Server
Posted on 2003-11-11
The existing Exchange Server 5.5 SP5 is named ABBY (after the owner's dog - don't ask).
Building a new Exchange Server 5.5 named HERMES.
Will move user mailboxes, distribution list, etc. from old to new server - no problem.
We have over 250 users running Outlook 2002 (from Office XP) under Windows 2000 Professional.
The only option I currently have would be to go to each user's PC - logged on as the user - and manually modify the Outlook 2002 profile to change the Exchange server name from ABBY to HERMES.
OK.. the question.
Is there any utility or batch job that I would use to do a mass (and automated) change of each user's Outlook 2002 profile to the new Exchange Server name?
Yes, I have looked at the Outlook 2000 User Profile Utility - it appears to be only for Outlook 2000. Can't find any utility in the Office XP Resource kit.
