Migrating from Exch2003 to Exch2010 Public folders


I have an old MS Exchange 2003 with lots of Public Folders, which I have moved to Exch2010 along with the mailboxes.
My problem is, that when I turn off the old Exchange server, then the local Outlook clients can not access the Public Folders, but if you are using OWA, which connect to the 2010, then there is no problem with the Public Folders.

If I run an outlook /rpcdiag from one of the clients, I can see that the Public Folders points to the old Exch2003 server.

I have done everything I have found on the internet, so I'm stuck here.

Please help...
