We're about to migrate the office from one hosted Exchange server to BPOS.  The installation of the BPOS Sync Tool necessitates the creation of a new MAPI profile on each client computer running Outlook.  Some of the folks in the office have crafted their Outlook configuration settings.  They'll lose these settings and have to create new ones with the new MAPI profile.  Is it possible to transfer the configuration settings over to the new MAPI profile?

Assuming your talking about the folder structure?
If so you can just export it to PST then you can open the PST on your new outlook profile
what happens if you just manually update the server name under the account settings?

demazter,

My concern is visible fields (in email and tasks), filters, groupings, sorts, reading panes...  I have some users that are extremely particular.

endital1097,

The server name doesn't live in email account settings w/ the BPOS Sync Tool.  It's hard-wired into the Sync Tool.
