Migrating from Exchange5.5 to Exchange 2003 and Changing Client Settings

We are about to migrate from exchange 5.5 to exchange 2003.  We are creating a new orginization for the 2k3 server. When we are done with the migration the 5.5 server will be decommisioned.  We have 300 users with about 50 of those users at remote locations.  What are my possibilities for changing the server name on each client computer

Our users are
60% Windows 2000
40% Windows NT
and all systems have Office 2000

Thanks,
Chris

check out the modprof.exe utilitiy from MS. it can preserve and change current settings. here's a list with some other options, but most of the commercial ones still rely on newprof or modprof to make changes.
