Connecting Outlook after Exchange 2010 Migrations (EXG6)
What to expect to see for your exchange migration.

NOTE: If the autodiscover redirect pop-up does not automatically appear in Outlook after the migration completes, you can force Outlook to search for and display the pop-up with the steps below:
