The answer is simple:  It is by design.

Subject: Why Outlook establishes multiple connections to multiple
Exchange servers


This is the output from netstat -a. Why Outlook opens so many RPC
connections to multiple Exchange servers even though only mailbox is
configured in Outlook profile?

The problem we have encountered here is kind of strange to us. We moved all
mailboxes and public folders from one server (EXCH01) to another, then we
powered off EXCH01 (the plan was to delete it from the site to retire it),
we wanted to wait for couple days to see if everything went okay. Users that
their mailboxes were moved complained Outlook login process took a long time
and run very slow. Run netstat on the user's machine. We found Outlook still
wanted to talk to EXCH01. The only way to solve this slow performance
problem is to power EXCH01 back on. Now we have powered it on and users said
the slow performance problem is gone. Not sure why Outlook still needs to
talk to the old home server EXCH01. There is nothing on EXCH01. Anyone has
similar problems or experiences please advise. Thanks.
