change exchange server IP via command line in Outlook 2011 for Mac
Posted on 2014-01-05
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.
