I have a project for a client where I need to roll out Outlook 2007 to about 600 users some on them are onsite and some are remote.

Can someone please provide me with a few options and suggestions on how to best do this, I really dont want to go round with a CD and run a setup wizard. I would like to be able to do it remotely and also somewhat automated. What are my options.

Many thanks

Office Resource Kit tools will allow you to create a custom installation.
Then it comes down to how you get the application to the users.

For local users on a network you could push it out by Group Policy. However if you have remote users on slower connections they will not like you pushing out a 500mb installation file over their link one morning.

The remote users you may not have much choice but to call them in to the installation. For the local users group policy may well work, but be careful and test it carefully.
