We are using Outlook 2003 with Exchange 2003

Our current "Exchange Proxy Settings"

under Tools > Email Accounts > Change > More Settings > Connection tab > Exchange Proxy Settings button

specify the server using an external IP Address rather than a URL.  i.e.

and also for the "Principal name for proxy server" i.e.

Is there a way to change this (via group policy, registry, scripting, etc...) to be a URL rather than an IP Address?

We have many remote users and getting our hands on the laptops to change this will be impossible.

I have looked in the GP Admin template for Office 2003 but couldn't find anything there.

Thanks for any guidance you can give.
