    yea you can do this....

    If you push out office via GPO.... you can use the Office Resource Kit to customise the installation of office and therefore you can tell outlook the setting for the exchange server

    Sorted it! created a .prf file using the resource kit the added the following to the logon script.

    IF EXIST "C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\flag.dat" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\outlook.exe"
    IF EXIST "C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\flag.dat" goto :EOF
    ECHO All done>"C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\flag.dat"
    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\outlook.exe" /importprf \\DC01\tpublic$\OUTLOOKPROFILE.PRF
