2 Exchange Servers, 2 Domains, Outlook 2000 Address Book reverting

I have 2 Exchange servers on 2 domains.  I'm moving people over slowly from one Exchange server to the other.

Domain 1 is cpp.local
Domain 2 is cppistons.com

A trust relationship exists between the two domains.  This isn't germaine, but I have contact accounts for each person to forward between the servers.

Everyone logs into cpp.local.  That will continue.

Here's the problem:  At night, people using the Domain 2 Exchange server and using Outlook 2000 have their global address books revert to the one on Domain 1.  This seems independent of rebooting.  If they use the Domain 1 (cpp.local) addresses to send mail, their mail will is rejected because they're using the Exchange server on domain 2 (cppistons.com).

The long term goal is to move all resources over to the new domain.  We're starting with mail.

outlook address book is tied to the GLOBAL CATALOG server residing within a forest that outlook usrs log in.....so if users are logging in to the cpp.local their address book lookup will be from a global catalog server within that forest....

to figure out which global catalog server an outlook client uses for address lookup
open outlook click on the address book icon(open it)..then tools \option
and choose global address list and then check for the provider....that is the
global catalog server that outlook client contacts
