How to create profiles for users running outlook 2003 automatically?


Could someone tell me how I can create outlook profiles for group of users automatically? I know there is a tool out there in Office Resource kit. If someone point me to the right direction, I really appreciate it. I want to avoid touching every users PC to create the profile.

Also, Can I use this tool for Citrix users?

Thanks a bunch!

Greetings, JasminZ !

If you are using an Exchange, use Outlook Profiler to create a profile automatically

You can follow these instructions for using Office Resource Kit to create profiles. It refers to Outlook 2000, but will work in Outlook 2003.

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/assistance/ha011379911033.aspx

Newprof.exe is the tool that Outlook uses to create Outlook profiles. Usually, Outlook uses Newprof.exe only to create a new Outlook profile when no Outlook profile exists. If you want to create a new Outlook profile regardless of whether a profile already exists, you can use the Custom Installation Wizard to include Newprof.exe as an application to run after installation.

When you include Newprof.exe as a standalone application, you must also include a reference to a PRF file, a text file that contains Outlook profile settings information.

Toolbox   The Office Resource Kit downloads page includes a sample Outlook.prf file in the Outlook Information section. This sample file contains an example and instructions for modifying the file to create various Outlook profiles. You can find this downloadable file on the Office 2000 Resource Kit Downloads page.
