Automatically updateing the outlook/Exchange profile

I know I can use the ODK/IDK to create the mapi profile. I can even use some variables such as LOGINID to customize settings in the profile.

What I want to know is if I can UPDATE the profile automatically, NOT OVERLAY it.

Is there a way to automatically read the current settings then change some of them and leave the others intact.

We are setting up a server specifically for mail archives and want to minimize the user's need to implement changes. So I want to change the location and name of the default archive file, make sure that archiving is turned on, and set the archive interval.

Can this be done with the ODK?
---or---
Is there another tool for me to use?
---or---
Am i screwed?

Thanks

Microsoft has a modify profile utility for Outlook 2000 -- see http://www.microsoft.com/office/ork/2000/journ/OutToolsIntro.htm. For profile changes to earlier versions, you might be best served by something like ProfileMaker or one of the other profile tools listed at http://www.slipstick.com/exs/olroam.htm.
Archive settings, however, are not part of the MAPI profile. The default archive file is set in the user's Windows registry. I think that's a setting covered by the ODK. If not, you can use a .reg file to set it.
