Hey thanks for that, I can see how to create the outlook profile now.
How do I get the username to match up with the profile in the registry?
Is it not better to do this using a vbs script at login or a modified shortcut on the desktop?

Usually anywhere between 30 seconds to 60 seconds is an acceptable logon time from start to finish. This takes into consideration profile size, wireless or wired, speed of the workstations and load on the servers.

I've been chasing this for a while now and it does seem like i have this problem:
Fix for the 20-second Logon Delay With IE7 Released - MS Windows Vista Compatible Software
The only thing is that we have sp3 on and every single update for xp and IE. I've tried getting the hotfix for it (earlier in the thread) but its for sp2. I've tried uninstalling IE and reinstalling.. doesnt seem to do any better. Gonna see if MS will help but i doubt it because they most likely want to deploy IE8.
Any ideas anyone?
EDIT: FYI we run XP SP3

OK even tho the problem seem to be with IE7, its not. Brndlog.txt did show a delay but it seems to be fixed now. This howevery did now resolve the 20 second gap caused by rundll32.exe.
This can be an issue if you search AD for a username and get more than one result, mine for example doesn't work with this, but then I have no mandatory profile. My user name is david, this returns all the exchange enabled Davids in AD and will prompt when opening outlook. Staff user names use their initials/sims staff code which are individual and will not return any other users, students use sims admin numbers so they would be ok too.
You can run it with a script, but it will cause outlook to open when it's applied, with the registry it simply applies it when the user opens outlook.
