I have 150+ workstations that are running several different versions of Outlook (97, 2000, 2003) on several different OS's ... 98, NT, 2000 & XP ... in just about any combination.   Currently they POP two accounts, one from an in-house server which was ID'd using it's IP address and one from an external server.

We will be implementing a new server in-house as a single solution.  I'm looking for a way to change the IP address  name of the POP3 and SMTP entries used for the in-house account to a DNS name and delete the second account pointing to the external server without going around and logging on to each machine as the user.  Once that is done I can handle the switch to the new server via my internal DNS

Is there a way to ID that info in the registry (I assume that is where it's stored)?

Okay I wasn't able to test every version of out look but it will for sure work for outlook 2003. Step one is to configure one outlook the way you want it. Secong go into the registry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles\Outlook\9375CFF0413111d3B88A00104B2A6676
Under that will be a listing of your accounts copy the POP3 key and SMTP put it into a .reg file and push it out. The only thing wrong with this is that it numbers the accts in the order created so the first acct might not always be the internal acct.
