In Outlook 2007 (running as a Citrix 4.5 application) how can I change which Exchange server Outlook connects to?

In Outlook 2007 (running as a Citrix 4.5 application) how can I change which Exchange server Outlook 2007 connects to?

Currently when a user launches Outlook 2007 from his Citrix applications, Outlook 2007 tries to connect to an old Exchange server, which does not host the user's mailbox.

How can I change which Exchange server Outlook 2007 connects to when Outlook 2007 is loaded from the Citrix applications?

You can go to Tools > Account Settings > Select Microsoft Exchange and click change in outlook bar.
Enter correct name for exchange server and type username in field bellow.
Press ok and restart outlook.

You'll have to change it from the Citrix server - it depends on how it was originally configured but most likely it was made by using Office Custom Installation Wizard, and the information is stored in a preference (.prf) file.

rjpilcher,

You're right. The change must be made from Citrix. I have already tried to make this change from Outlook 2007, but have been unable to do so.

Can you please give me more detailed instructions on how I can make this change from the Citrix server?

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

As I said, it depends on your Citrix installation and how that was all set up.  Try looking for a .prf (outlook.prf is the default) file on your server.  This will have the Outlook preferences.  Also, this may be set in Group Policy so check there as well.

Do these .prf files apply to individual users or do they apply to all Citrix users?

Most likely (again, depending on setup) it will apply globablly.  Is this what you need?

Is there a way that I can modify the settings for just one user so that this one user only has the five Citrix application icons instead of having all of the Citrix icons?

Does anyone else have any more commentes on how in Outlook 2007 (running as a Citrix 4.5 application) how can I change which Exchange server Outlook connects to?

I have found these .prf files, but none of them have anything to do with Outlook.
