I'm working on a migration and I'm seeing an issue when moving a mailbox from Exchange 2007 to 2010.

When we open up an outlook client its not changing the mail server name to the Exchange 2010 server.

Anyone have any ideas?

Yes, they are running Exch 2007 SP2.

Update: for some reason the desktops have Outlook Anywhere enabled, if I disable Outlook Anywhere and close Outlook, when I reopen it changes the server name to the correct exchange 2010 server.

However I dont want to do this for 100 users, any ideas why that would fix it?

I have never heard of that, have you tried having the users run gpupdate /force and logoff and log back on?  I would try that on one computer and then let the replication happen automatically after I think it is two hours.
