    Setting up mail?

    Hi all,

    Wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to automatically set up the mail app/outlook based on their AD login name? We have a mac server, workgroup manager etc.

    thanks

    Hi

    Should be possible using LDAP - so as long as you have server 2008 running AD - then user logins can be taken from their.

    We did this at my last job (I was only semi-involved, but I can ask the guy who did it, if you would like more information)

    I do this with our students Google Drive accounts using Profile Manager. I use the Mail payload and I prefill everything from the account description to the email address. I use variables to dynamically fill in the email address, username, and the Display name. A list of usable variables is here . You can also use Workgroup Manager although it's a little more kludgy. You have to select the group or particular user you want to provide the preference to and switch from Overview to Details on the Preferences screen and locate Mail-10.6 then add the keys and variables using that. It's fairly straightforward, but if you need help I can walk you through it.
