Automatically configure an existing outlook xp profile to use a different exchange server

Is it possible to automatically, without user intervention, reconfigure an existing Outlook XP profile to use a different exchange server.  I would like to find out how to do this and to have it occur when a user logs on to the network.  Currently we have 5 exchange servers and periodically for various reasons some of the server names need to change , so it would be real handy to be able to have the users profiles automatically change to reflect the new server names.

We already use the CIW tool to create Transforms in order to modify the Office installation in order to point to an exchange server But we would really like to be able automatically make changes to outlook after the initial installation and we would like to know if this can be done without third party tools

You don't say what version of Exchange you are running.
Also are you asking this question because you move mailboxes from one Exchange server to another one?
Exchange 5.5:
If all the Exchange servers are in the same SITE, then if you move a mailbox to another server via Move Mailbox in the Exchange Admin program, the Outlook profile will automatically update to the new server when the user logs on.

Exchange 2000:
It works the same way as above.

Maybe if you explained a little further what the exact steps you do when "changing" to use a different server, we can provide a better answer.
