It is possible to set Outlook settings via a gpo.  You will need to add the outlook adm file to your gpo.  You can get that from the office resource kit.  I've read there's also a stand-alone outlook resource kit.  Then, the settings will show up in your group policy object.
  Also, should you wind up with a stand-alone client, you can also set many of those same settings through either the IEAK (Internet Explorer Administration Kit) or when you make the transform for an Office install.  Of course, you could also just set it on the local policy.

Check out this site for the older (2000) resource kit material:

There's also a bit of a howto, albeit on Outlook 2002, on how to set up your gpo with the adm file.  I believe this one requires you to signup to read it, but basic signup is free.
