I need to change the server name for all my Exchange users, both servers are online so it should be a smooth transition, my question is how can I change the server name shown in the users mail profile? A script or utility would be ideal.

Unless its changed in the new version, you shouldn't need to change it.

  • Close Outlook
  • Move mailbox from old server to new server
  • Leave the old server online
  • Open Outlook, it should automagically detect the change.
