I have Exchange 5.5 and would like to install Outlook 98 or 2000 everywhere, but want to create a custom installation so that I dont need to put in the username and server name everytime.
How do I create it?

you need to use the PROFGEN utility from BORK.  It will automate all this in the logon script.  It is very easy to implement.

I also would suggest deploying Outlook 2000 using the Custom Installation Wizard (or if using Outlook 98, use the ODK for 98)

It is all here (except PROFGEN)  Profgen is on the Backoffice 4.0 and 4.5 ResKit CD.

Good luck!
