I am looking for a way to use a batch file to automatically configure an Outlook email account directly after the user logs onto the network.  If this is possible, please let me know.  Also, i am new to the btac file world so the clearer an answer is, the better.  Thanks.

Hi dlev15,

Microsoft has created some tools to make this a lot easier.
You can create a PRF (Profile) settings-file, which you can deploy.
Anyway, MS explains it a lot better than I can. Look here for Office 2000; (this mechanism is also incuded in Office XP):

Good luck,
