Pushing out Outlook through Group Policy

Hello everyone!

I want to push out outlook 2003 using group policy to all the client who don't have it, but I don't want them to be asked for keys or anything, and it has to be "upgrade" as opposed to complete installation or whatever...what is the best way to do this? What happens if the user already have outlook 2003?

Hi
First create an administrative install of Office 2003 - Then use the custom installation wizard to modify the elements of Office to be deployed. You can customise it so only Outlook 2003 is pushed out. If you want a minimum or no interaction from the end user then assign it via machine policy from a GPO linked to an OU - you'll need to test it first.
