    Is your system not setup to use Autodiscover? Ours is and all you do is open outlook and it self-configures, all you do is open it, it welcomes you click next and it finds you and shows your email address, click next and finish job done very simple even our Y7 sussed it out without being told by the teacher!

    Autodiscover will be your friend:

    Autodiscover and Exchange 2007

    Honest I don't do anything to ours and didn't even give instruction and people sussed it out which was VERY surprising!

    Hello.
    You can use the OCT and there is a section to apply a outlook prf which will auto configure outlook when first opened. Then the .msp can be deployed to the target computers via gpo.
    Deploy Outlook mail profile settings via GPO or script - HowTo-Outlook | HowTo-Outlook
    I would try this on a test OU first.
