How can I set up outlook 2k3 to automaticaly link into the exchange mailbox of each user who logs on.
Posted on 2004-11-15
I work in a large high school (yr 11/12) and I want to set up outlook so that whenever a studen logs onto a machine outlook is automatically pointed to the correct students account on our exchange server.
We don't use roaming profiles.
I had hoped it would be as simple as creating a profile on the machine, setting up outlook with the exchange server and a usename of %usename% and then copying this profile over the default profile but unfortunately not. Outlook won't resolve the usename from the %usename% tag. It just complains that it can't match the username "%usename%" in the AD and to specify a new name.
There must be a relatively straigh forward way to do this, all I need is for outlook to use the exchange server I specify and then the user logon name for the exchange mailbox.
I hope this is enough information. Please just ask if I can clarify something.
