Changing the Microsoft Exchange Server name Automatically

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
