change exchange server IP via command line in Outlook 2011 for Mac
Can I change my Outlook 2011 for Mac's "Microsoft Exchange", "Server:" global IP address via command line syntax, or better question, can I keep our exchange server from resolving the ugly global IP that seemingly works in all connection cases to our std corp mail.ourcorpname.com?? The global IP seems to work in all connection cases.
On the road, I constantly change between Hotel wifi, USB modem, site wireless, on VPN, off VPN, and our exchange server always resolves the globle IP to our std mail.ourcorpname.com name. Which causes the dreaded "Not Connected to..." message in my lower right Outlook screen.
I figure I can at least write a script to change back to global IP from clicking a handy icon w/o the time consuming process of clicking 7 times to change the name back to global IP.

With mobile users and email clients you normally control the mail server IP address by using a DNS host name that will resolve to the correct email server from internal and external locations.
When internal MAC user queries the internal DNS server, the DNS resolves the mail server host name using the internal DNS server. When I'm external I use the public DNS servers.. on both networks I use mail.ourcorpname.com
Do you admin the external and internal DNS servers ?
