Change exchange server name to cas array name for all outlook 2003 clients

I've successfully created a CAS array for a site. Is there a way to Change the exchange server name to the cas array name in all outlook 2003 clients (that were setup prior to the creation of the cas array). New outlook users resolve to the cas array name automatically.

If I move a user's mailbox from one exchange server to another, the outlook profile gets updated automatically with the new exchange server name. Isn't there some way for the exchange CAS servers to update outlook client machines so they automatically redirect to the cas array name?
i.e an exchange solution rather than a login script ?
