    Outlook 07 setup without exchange

    Alright, we have about 20+ employees, small company. We don't have Exchange (sadly) and I'm in charge of automating just about everything here. How can I setup Outlook to create a profile based on how the user's credentials when he or she logs in? We are using POP3 and I also need to make sure the "Leave a copy of messages on the server" checkbox is checked.

    Wish we used exchange but that's several hundreds of dollars that we don't have. =/

    You can create a prf file using the Office Custom Installation Wizard (ideally, you do this before you deploy Outlook but you can deploy the prf file later)

    Quick google finds Create an Outlook Profile file (*.PRF) which should get you started.

    Agree with Steve, a PRF was how we worked 'around' this lack of exchange in my previous place, 150 users in the end, pretty flawless.
