There are utilities do do this but it isn't necessary on a SMall Business Server.  If you use the http://servername/connectcomputer to join the workstation to the domain then an SBS cript runs each time the user logs in and if Outlook hasn't been setup with their settings it does it for you automagically.

In other words, you already got it and you don't have to do anything special to use it other than follow the recommended procedures for joining the workstation.

Lengthly setup process and requires testing, easier to get the users to follow the three step process for the moment!
