Microsoft Outlook 2002 - exchange connection

Posted on 2005-04-28

I have Microsoft Outlook 2002 on my client machines connected to an Active Directory environment. The Outlook connects to Exchange 2000 via the email account connection settings page. I have introduced a second exchange server into the active directory called exchange-2000a. This server will replace the original exchange server (Exchnage-2000). Prior to any removal of servers I am aware that I must ensure that the mail box accounts for the client are moved from my exchange-2000 server to my exchange-2000a server. This is all fine. In the event that I know remove the original exchange server (exchange-2000) can I configure my client machines to automatically connect to the newly introduced exchange-2000a server on the AD. The idea is to prevent a member of the I.T department reconfiguring over 100 client machines.

    After a move mailbox, once a client logs on the old server should redirect the profile to the new server.  Just make sure you leave the old server up long enough for everyone to logon once and you should be fine.
