Outlook Server Based Installation

Hello,


I would like to install Outlook97 as a server based
installation (with exchange server 5.5 services).


As I figured out I have 3 options:

1. Working - Copy on the file server and installation on
   every client manually.
2. Server based installation ("setup /a") on the file server
   and installation on every client manually with only
   few workstation files on the workstation.
3. "Outlook Web access" with less functions (esp. drag
   and drop) on the web browser. This possibility means
   less installation work at the client.
4. Server based ("setup /a") installation with predefined
   profiles for automatic client installation.

For this last option I would like to have some more information.
Who has done that?

I wouldn't spend time figuring out auto-install routines for Outlook 97.  Go get Outlook 98 and use the Outlook Deployment Kit (deploys both Outlook 98 and an updated 4.01 IE browser.)

Pretty easy to do.

ODK (Outlook Deploymeny Kit) is what you need, it's very simple and will allow you to modify Outlook if you wish. You will then be able to save to a cdrom (if you have a burner) or to a network share. Your users will only have to click on the *.exe to install Outlook with the options you have chosen.
