I'm using a program that does MAPI lookups from AD to a GC.  I think this program is stuck using a GC that is failing.  I want to set a specific GC for it to use.  Is there any way via the registry I can specify which DC/GC a workstation will use.  I don't see any settings on my app or in the registry settings of the app, but it uses MAPI to perform queries to Exchange 5.5 and 2003.  Any help would be appreciated.

I think what you're looking for is LdapSrvPriority key. It is part of DC Locator DNS settings for XP/2003.
