Hello.

I am looking to change the Exchange Server name automatically, probably using VBA code. I am talking about when you:

1. right-click on your desktop "Outlook" icon, select properties
2. select "Microsoft Exchange Server" from the "Services" tab and click on properties
3. changing the "Microsoft Exchange Server" name on the top line

Can anyone help?

Thx,

Clayton

'This will enumerate through the registry and change the Exchange Server data for a user

const HKEY_CURRENT_USER = &H80000001

Set oReg=GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" &_

".\root\default:StdRegProv")

Set StdOut = WScript.StdOut
