Using Powershell to Help Migrate Your Users' Connection to Sharepoint to a New Site

If you are using many SharePoint lists and want to connect them to Outlook automatically for your users, you have probably noticed that the official tools for this are lacking. We don't get nearly the simplicity of Exchange Public Folders without a lot of work, from the difficulty in just getting the SharePoint URLs in the format Outlook requires, to deploying those lists with the limited Group Policy options Microsoft provides. This situation isn't really acceptable once you get above 10-20 lists, so I spent some time putting together some tools in Powershell that make this process a little less painful. The full set of scripts can be found here.
