Move User AD object with Exchange 2007 mailbox to another OU in the same Domain


I need to move some users from one OU1 to another OU2 in the same Domain tree. All this users have a Mailbox on our Exchange 2007 server.

Will this moving process of a user object affect anyhow the Exchange Mailbox or can we just move them?

You can just move them. The only thing that may be affected is a Dynamic Distribution List. Other than that, it should be transparent.

Thanx for the fast answer!

So that means also the cached email addresses in other internal users Outlook which references to the old AD OU path, will not work anymore, right?
So I guess the best would be we would delete all the cached email addresses of all our users in their Outlook.

Anything else?
their will be no effect by moving user from one OU to need to delete cache email address.  Outlook do not connect via OU.. but to exchange directly..
No, just move the user and go about your day :)
