I need a way to distribute a small setup script to several users which will setup their mail acoounts in Outlook.
I've already made a similiar thing for Outlook Express users, where they simply click a registry file, and voila....their account is up and running in OE. But how do i achieve this same thing with regards to Outlook...?

Anyone?

Best regards,
Roger

In outlook XP, give the users a .prf file.  In XP it is executable.
In previous versions you need to use the modprof or newprof utility available online in the Microsoft Office Resource kit (free download)

Will they have to use a new profile for each time I assign a new mailaccount to them....?!?
I do not want to mess too much with their current setup....just add a new account...no more/no less.....
