If it is a small number of users, then you just go to Control Panel, Mail, View Properties of the Exchange account, and then alter the server name to the new name.

This assumes you have made provision for restoring the mailbox and data to the new server.

If I do like this still the user is pointing to old server in user properities in exchange general tab .i want to connect to new server by usid AD how do i do that.

Mark DamenERP System ManagerCommented:
Far as I know the change needs to be made client side, because that is where the config is that tells Outlook where to find the Exchange server.  This is the case unless you have clustering, in that situation the client looks at a global name say mail.domain.com and then you can alter things server side as to which node of the cluster is online etc.

you will first have to move the users mailbox to the new server via exchange system manager then all the users need to do is restart outlook and it will redirect them to the new server.

then you can re store to RSG  and reconnect the mailboxes
