outlook scripts

by bburke In reply to outlook scripts

I've been looking for this one for a while and have come up short a number of times. We have a Terminal Server environment and would like to add Outlook profiles by script too. I'm in the process of figuring out exactly how to do it and the best resource I've come across is the following web page. I'll just post the url rather than the whole explanation since it is a bit complex and has some downloads involved.
here ya go:http://www.bovistech.co.uk/outlook.htm

The Modify Profile (modprof.exe) utility included with the Office 2000 Resource Kit and an appropriately modied "defaul.prf" will create a users Outlook profile but the login script might not be the best place to call it from. The trick is to run iton their first login only. On my Novell 4.11 network this can be done by using Netware Administrator to create an application object with the "Run Once" box checked. On a pure NT network you could add a call to modprof.exe to the "runonce" registry key of the Default User profile that is used to create new user's proviles (local workstation or Domain Controler). Finally, I should add that this only works (or at least in my case) when the users' login name is the same as their Exchange alias. I hope that this helps.
