Hi Guys,

I'm going to be replacing my Exchange 2003 server.  All clients are running Outlook 2003.  Once everything is moved from the old Exchange server to the new one, the old one will be taken offline, and rebuilt and branded as something else.

My question is, what is the best way to change the Exchange Server settings in Outlook for all of the clients?  Is there a way to do this in group policy, or with a logon script?  Or will Outlook automatically pick up where the mailboxes are?

I had also read on here someone's suggestion of using a CNAME value in DNS to point the old name to the new server.  This seems like a good idea and one that would work for me... but is there a better way?
