Creating a default mail message in Outlook 2003.

I have been requested to provide a mail message for new starters when they first open Outlook detailing Health & Safety regulations. This should be a little like the one which is created by default in Outlook when a new mail profile is created. I have built a utility which automates the whole new user process including the ability to send a mail to the new user but owing to the replication lag in creating an exchange email address this never reaches the new user.
Is there any way to create a default mail perhaps on the client side or another way to do this I've not thought of? At the moment the only solution is to log the users in a text file somewhere and set up a scheduled job to run 15 mins or so after the accopunt had been created.

Thanks.

Adding a message at the client end is simple.  Having this occur automatically the first time Outlook is used is a bit more difficult.  Let me think about it a bit to see if I can come up with a way to handle that.

I have been informed elsewhere that this isn't possible. I have resolved the issue by creating a scheduled job that runs 15 minutes after the mailbox is created which then runs a script to send the email message to the users mailbox. Thank you, this question can be closed.
