my problem is that we have 2-3 users that when i change the http connection settings in outlook from e.g: origanal.servername.com.au to our new server name that was set up about 2 months ago to mail2.newserver.com.au and apply these settings they are applied and everything works great. when the user closes outlook then re-opens, outlook freezes and wont start up at all. i close out look from task manager and go into control panel\ mail then check the settings and the http connection settings have changed back to the old server name. i have removed the users profile on one of the machines and reconfigured from scratch but it still occurs. as the old exchange server was only recently removed as in about a week ago i have afeeling it may be a setting in exchange that i need to configure\change to stop this but i have had a look and cant seem to find anything that might cause it.. or would it be anything else on the machine?

Ususally when it reverts back it means it couldnt find the new server. Check your autodiscover settings/DNS and make sure you can connect to that HTTP address from the outside world.

it ended up being caused by our login script program having a setting for our old exchange server which was making it rivert back to the original settings.
