Default changing mail server on the BES

Please Login to Remove!

We recently changed over to a new mail server... how can I change each user on our BES to point to the new server not the old?

It is an AD function, BES points to AD.

If on exchange you just move the mail box and AD takes care of the rest.
Might not be fast is some cases though
Sometimes you have to restart BES services for BES to release the cached items.

Default Hi, and how to you change it on the BES in a Lotus Domino environment?

Hi, we've the same situation with new Mailservers. Unfortunately the mailfile server and domain (both changed) is not picking up automatically via the configured directories via Directory Assistance.

Anyone an idea?
