Current environment:
Head office (HO):
Windows 2003 DC with DNS and Exchange 2003 standard on the same box (dc-ex).
Site replication: HO-A, HO-B

Site A: Windows 2003 DC with DNS (dc-a)
Site B: Windows 2003 Dc with DNS (dc-b)

Goal: separate Exchange 2003 and dc role s on dc-ex and minimize re-configuration on user end - Outlook configuration.

https://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/Q_23505721.html

The above link shows the only way to separate it is to install a new Exchange server, migrate mailboxes over, remove Exchange from dc-ex.

The above method will end up with a new Exchange 2003 with different name, which requires reconfigure all Outlook.

Q#1. Which server does Outlook point to when the old Exchange and new one co-exist?
Q#2. Any quick way to reconfigure Outlook to point to the new server?

Thanks.

Will Outlook 2003 automatically point to the new Exchange 2010 server after I move its mailbox from old Exchange 2003 server?
