I wish to set up outllook with username and exchange server name on a 2003 domain, xp computers.
Mixed bag of outlook 2002 and 2003 already preinstalled.
Using roaming profiles.
I want server name = mail and username = %username%  I think!
Perhaps use a custom adm  to set a path to a prf file.
But I dont know how to make the adm file.

    The Office Resource Kit tools will do the work for you. Download from Microsoft. You will have to create separate file sets for each version of Outlook, so you will need both Office XP and Office 2003 res kits.

    I have downloaded and expande the resourse kit and can see nothing that can set a path  to a prf file.

    Any ideas?

    Have you run the setup wizard to create the PRF file?
    Have you read the documentation that comes with the resource kit or is on Microsoft's web site on how to deploy Outlook?

    I have the prf ok, its just setting a adm file to make a gpo. I need to set a path to the prf in the registry. I thought a gpo could do this.
