Method to change existing Outlook 2002 User Profiles in mass to new Exchange Server

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.

If you move the mailboxes using the move mailbox wizard, the client profiles will be updated automatically the next time the user logs on.  Just be sure to keep the old 5.5 server up long enough for everyone to logon once.
