exchange account to be defaulted

hi there

my client had a linux based mail server and mail was delivered through pop3 to outlook clients(2003,2007 and a few 2010), with a linux based DC(can't give much details on this though, hopefully is not important).
since the infrastructure was rather old, improvements were in order, so there's a new DC & exchange server, both running on Win Server 2008 R2 and Exchange 2010.
Each new exchange account has been added to the appropriate outlook client and eventually instructed people how to set their new exchange account as default.

Now, some of them reported that even though the default account is set to be the exchange one, the mail is delivered in their old pop3-inbox. This happens on both Outlook 2003 & 2007.
Of course, the pop3 account is still set up to avoid mail-loss.

Does anyone know a way to solve this?
