OST File recovery

Source server: Exchange 2003
target server : Exchange 2007

Client machine: outlook 2003.

Initially I have one mailbox(mailbox1) in the source exchange server.
In the Client Machine I created a Profile to Access the mailbox from
Source exchange server.
The Profile is Configured With OST File.

Then I migrated the Mailbox from source Exchange to target
and updated the Profile reflecting the target server name and
Mailbox in the registry.

I reset the OST Path To the OLD OST Path Manually in the registry.
To Avoid recreation of the OST File.

When I Open The Outlook Express Its Giving OST File Error.
<file>.ost cannot be accessed because it has beed configured to use
different mailbox.

What Other Keys I need to updated To Avoid recreation of the OST.

thanks

None. This won't work. You need to recreate the OST.

Strictly speaking, I believe if both exchange servers are in the same org
and both were still up and running, you could simply have started outlook
and it would have reconfigured itself to recognize the new server and
everything would just work, but with the changes to the profile, I'm pretty
sure there's no option but to recreate the OST. Just start it up, let it
run over night, and be done with it.
