Need solution to Exchange Mailbox move situation

By ssteinberg ·
I work in Desktop support for a large corporation. Recently our Exchange admin moved some user mailboxes from one server to another. Now we have a situation...
Users who have emailed other users previously have that email address cached in know where they start to type a name, and Outlook completes the address... Apparently Outlook is completing the email addresses and resolving them to the old email server. And now our Exchange admin is telling us the only solution to this is to re-profile each user locally on their PCs, but that's like 2000+. There has to be another way, and I am asking you in the community for help if you have the answer.

Easier solution...

by caestelle In reply to Need solution to Exchange ...

This may not be the easiest solution, but it is a better one. Search the computers for the .nk2 file and delete that. It will remove the cache. I just tested it on my computer and it worked for me(I am running Office 2k3). This is a hidden file, so keep that in mind. I hope this helps!!

Thanks for the reply. If we can't find a server-side solution, we can try that. Maybe with a batch file in the login script.
