Migration to Office 365

New Contributor

We're migrating from one hosted email provider to Office 365. I'm wondering if there's a way to automate the change of Outlook 2011 server settings via a login hook? I've attempted this, but every time it launches at login, it kills Outlook and I can't open Outlook until I rebuild the database and reboot.

Here's the script I'm using:

tell application "Microsoft Outlook" set the server of exchange account 1 to "server address"
end tell

tell application "Microsoft Outlook" set the ldap server of exchange account 1 to ""
end tell

This works fine via Self Service, but we'd really like to automate this.

Switch to Office 2016 which should be included in your 365 subscription. Make sure auto discover is configured properly then your users will be promoted for their email address when they launch outlook and the rest should happen automatically.

Need to be running 15.36 or higher.
