Changing reply address in outlook 2007 when changing default email address in Exchange 2003

We are changing the default domain email name at one of our clients. I think I have run into a problem with that. I can go into exchange and set the new default domain name for all users as xyz.com and it was previously abc.com. tell it to make those changes to all users. That is easy but what about outlook 2007? I tried this on a test account and outlook is still sending out email messages as abc.com domain and not the new one of xyz.com. How can I change that automatically from the server? or am I going to have to change that at the user level within Outlook 2007?

Thanks

I am going to have to change that. It seems only internally that this problem is happening. Externally the email addresses are showing up correctly on our test users after the change but internally they are not showing up. Would this be a cache issue with outlook 2007?

Thanks

You can change it at the server level.

Either by changing the default reply address in the Recipient Policy and then going to Exchange System Manager > Recipients and right cluck on the RUS and select rebuild.

Or if you want to do it for undvidual users in Active Directory Users and Computers right click on the user and select properties and under the email addresses tab highlight the address you want as default and click set as default then uncheck the box that says update addresses based on policy.  If you don't uncheck the box it will get changed back.

Could well be, under send and receive select download address book then uncheck the box that says only download changes.  Then Clive outlook and re-open it this will force the download of the OAB.

It may also be caches in the NK2 file which is stored in each users profile.

The OAB is (default) built at 5:00 AM and is loaded into Outlook when it starts. You need to manually start a rebuild on the Exchange server and then reload OAB either by following demaztet's instruction above or restart outlook.

As this is purely internal issue the chances are it's a cache problem with the NK2 file.  As mentioned in http:#26141371 this should therefore be accepted as the answer.
