• Automatic email profiles? (Outlook XP, Win2KSP3 / XPSP1)

    OK, here’s another one I’ve wanted to know how to do for ages.

    Suppose I have a domain user who logs in on a workstation he’s never logged into before. How can I automatically create an Outlook profile for him so he can check his email? I can add anything you like to the default login batch file, make any group policy changes, whatever.

    Outlook will be running in corporate/workgroup mode and will be connected to Exchange server, so I don’t need any Internet mail settings, address books, personal folders, etc, just the Exchange email account.

    Thanks —

      I’ve been waiting with bated (baited?) breath for an answer to Brian’s question. crossfingers I fear that since no one has responded that it’s not such a simple request. please say it’s not so.

      The back office resource kit (BORK) for Exchange 5.5 is said to have some utilities that help do what you need. I don’t know anyone who’s tried it, or if you can go the distance. Might be worth a look, though.

      It all depends on the version of Outlook you are using. For older versions of Outlook you can use the newprof or profgen in a script file. In newer versions of Outlook you can use a transform file to do what newprof and profgen does. For more information, check out the Office resource kit.
