Roaming Profiles and Outlook 2003 settings

We use Server 2003 for all of our AD and Exchange servers.  We just started using roaming profiles.  It works great.  One thing it doesn't do that we need it to do is automatically setup the outlook settings from their home machine to their remote machine.  In other words, roaming profile needs to copy not just the desktop and My Documents stuff (which it does) but ALSO their settings in Outlook.  Computer A is already set up.  Logged onto computer B with roaming profile and their Outlook settings from computer A never transferred over.  Any ideas?

You may want to explore using a .PRF file for this:

This sounds like it is what I am looking for.  I must be a moron.  How do you launch the Custom Installation Wizard?  Where is it?

ORK.  Just laughed when I saw the download name.  Thanks!

MS does have some unusual naming schemes!

You should be able to create your PRF now and dump it on all your PCs.  This will allow any domain member to have Outlook already configured no matter which PC they use.
