Auto setup of Outlook on a workstation in an AD?

By ryanlan01 ·
I would like to find a way that Outlook would configure itself when a new user logs into a workstation. The user has admin rights on the PC he is loggin into. Hes authenticating with an AD. Normally when they start Outlook and they are a new user, it asks for there exchange server, etc. Is there a way to set this up so it just logs them into exchange automaticlly?

I'm configuring outlook on an OEM install.

Thanks !

vbs script maybe

by johnnywatt In reply to Auto setup of Outlook on ...

I haven't tried this ok! But, try it to test it out. Config your outlook on a PC. then navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles in your REGEDIT. take a look at it as this appears to be some config info. Export that junk and import it on a different TEST pc. Remember, test, I haven't tried. if this works, use a vbs script to import it, or another method

Office 2003 Resource Kit

by GunnyBales In reply to vbs script maybe

If your deploying software via AD, then you need to configure the Office MSI with a Transcript file (MST) to answer these type questions. The tools are part of the Resource Kit. At my company, I have the exchange server and alot of other settings configured via the MST for company wide rollouts. An individual first time opening their Outlook and they have to wait for nobody to set it up, it's already done.
