    Re: MS Exchange - auto configuring Outlook?

    I would delpoy Outlook on startup ... automatically using the switch ...


    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office11\outlook.exe" /importprf T:\DefProfile\Office\PRF.PRF

    You can deploy it via startup logon script or put it in startup. Otherwise if you have redirected desktop and start menus replace the link target with that.

    Hope this helps...

    Run it in the logon script. Works great! Will do just what you want.
    Note that it's for Outlook 2000 and Outlook 2002 (Officed XP). For Outlook 2003 you would have to use CIW or CMW from the Office Resource KIT.

    Or use the /profile switch with the Outlook executable
    FYI using it with Outlook 2003 with no problems

    You don't have a backup copy? Tsk tsk

    If you have schools agreement then you could download it from Microsofts site.

    @pooley. That's good to know was using newprof until upgraded to 2003.
    It would be nice to have a solution which spans mulitple versions.
    Was just worried that the last update was in 2002.

    One final thing: Are you really going to give year 6,7 + pupils access to the full outlook client? There is quite a large amount of personal information that can be stored in the global address list.

    There also does not appear to be much scope for locking down the outlook interface.

    So what folder would i deploy the PRF that i have made?
