Need help trying to figure out a way to setup a users Internet E-Mail account settings (name, email address, smtp / pop server, etc) in Outlook 2000 without having to log into their domain user account and setup the information for them.   We currently are not running an Exchange server at this time - is there anyway to setup Outlook not from the users workstation and attach that information to their AD profile so when they log in everything is done for them?

I believe if you don't have Exchange, the information is not kept in AD.  About the only thing I could recommend is to put the profile creation in the logon script.  You should be able to write a Windows Script that will create a mail profile for the user, using the login name, server info, etc.

HTH,

wydopn,

yep, without exchange this isnt going to happen, You could of course create custom fields within AD but i still dont think it will achieve what you want

Regards,
