I am migrating users from one Exchange farm to another and although the backend migration is automated, I need to find a way to automate the below information. If anyone has any ideas, or even knows where the settings are stored that would be a great help.

Signature      
Personal Distribution Lists      
Personal Address Books      
Personal Folders Files      
Group Accounts      
Delegates      
Distribution Lists      
Offline folder file Settings
AutoArchive Settings
Use signature on replies and forwards Settings
Blackberry configuration      
Client rules      
Server rules      
Out of office      
Outlook favourites      
Personal Address Books contacts      
Custom Dictionary      
Public Folders      

Thanks

What version of outlook are you using??  If XP or later you could use Save My Settings Wizard as shown here:

Thanks for the suggestion, and we have XP but dont have that tool installed. What I am really after is a manual way to do this for outlook alone. Something I could put in a batch file.

Cheers
