migrating Exchange 2007 to new exchange 2007 server

Dear Experts.

I am currently migrating exchange 2007 from a physical server to a vm. So far, I have  built the new server, installed exchange server and applied all available updates.  I have also moved one mailbox for testing.

My question is this:  Outlook clients on the LAN will automatically point to the new exchange server once their mailboxes have been moved. But there are quite a few remote PCs that have outlook configured using rpc over https. Is there any way to have outlook re-point automatically once their mailbox has been moved to the new server? Autodiscover is not currently configured externally.  Could setting this up (correctly) tell outlook to re-point?

Thanks

Thanks but the two servers have different names.  The remote clients did pickup the server change automatically.

I was concerned that the remote clients wouldn't detect that their mailboxes had moved to a new server but they did.
