Hello,

We are currently in testing for a exchange 5.5/win2000 - exchange2003/win 2003 migration and we are at the point where we migrate the mailboxes from the 5.5 box to the 2003 box and that part goes very smoothly. If i log into the 2003 domain and open outlook and change the exchange server settings to point to the new exchang box, I am able to open alll the email just fine. However we have 200+ users and we would like not to have to manually change the exchange connection on each persons outlook. Is there a way to automate this process, or push it out through group policy? I have tried to look through the registry for that setting but it appears to be encyrpted. Any help would be very appreciated, if you need any more info please let me know and I will be more than glad to provide. thanks

Mark

Are you doing a cross org/domain migration?
If so, then you are going to have to script the change. What that involves depends on the version of Outlook being used.

Thanks for the response! Yes we are, were migrating form a magnum.com domain to a magnumins.com domain. I figured that it would involve a script of some sort, which is why i tried to find a registry key but to no avail. The version of outlook is #11. Could you help point us in the right direction?

Outlook 11 (2003) is easy to script.

Get the Office Resource Kit tools from Microsoft. Free download on their Office web site.
Then create an Outlook configuration file - *.prf file.

I was going to write a long process...
