Is there a way to predefine a users Outlook using a policy or something, so that when they login, there outlook settings are already configured? If not, how can I set these items without going to the users desktop?

Thanks,

Judd Spence

There are two programs available from Microsoft: <NewProf.exe> and <ModProf.exe> on the subject. The first one creates a new profile or overwrites an existing one using definitions in .prf file. The second utility may create a new profile if it doesn't exist just like <NewProf> does, or may append information to an existing profile. These two utilities are useful in most cases.
