Outlook profile issue after moving mailbox to Exchange 2010

Hi,

The existing mail server is Exchange 2007.

I built a new Exchange Server 2010 after a successful installation.

The routing between Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2010 works fine including external...no issue on routing.

Created a new mail enable user in Exchange 2007, then configured Outlook profile, tested sent/received email which works fine then i log off.

I then successfully moved the mailbox user's from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2010.

I login again into Outlook but it says disconnected from the Exchange server.....it is still pointing to the Exchange 2007.

I thought Outlook will AUTOMAGICALLy find Exchange 2010 server because that is where the mailbox is residing?

Should I name my CAS array to "outlook.domain.local' for example before moving further mailbox then create a DNS entry for 'outlook' pointing to Exchange 2010 ?

Appreciate any help.

Outlook 2010 will automagically find a user's mailbox server when the profile is first created.
