Hi, I’m currently setting up a active directory/exchange (server 2003) network for 450+ users (xp workstations running office 2003). I’m wondering if it's possible for outlook to "auto configure" when a domain user logs on for the first time. at the moment outlook asks for exchange server name and user name to be added. if this feature is available i would be very grateful if you could run through the steps to enable this.

Thanks in advance.

Jon

SR,

thanks for this, however after looking on the MS site i cannot find any reference to the "connector" mentioned in the above article. as a foot note i am running roaming profiles on this domain.

Thanks Again,

Jon

I think it is Office Profile wizard that you need (haven't got my notes in front of me).

You enter it with the Exchange server name and the username in the format %username%.
As long as the Exchange server shown is valid then Outlook will connect them to the correct one. I usually use a Frontend server as the intitial server then let Outlook redirect.

I refered to a configuration - not the configurator in that thread.

Simon.

Ok, i've found the Custom Installation Wizard. built up an .mst file but when i go to run the command ( setup.exe TRANSFORMS="C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\office11.MST" /qb- ) i get a XP Setup command saying " Please go to the control panel to install and configure system components"

Cheers,
Jon
