Try re-installing Office/Outlook and doing the repair option.
Incidentally, if you ever need to fix a corrupt profile, don't delete stuff from the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE section of the registry as that belongs to the server, not the user.

Here is a sample PRF file. Edit the file and do a find and replace. Replace "JJJ" with the name of your exchange server. There are two entries to replace.
Then try launching the PRF file.
You could use it as a workaround by placing it on the "All Users" desktop and getting users to launch it instead of the Outlook shortcut. You could even create a shortcut to the PRF file and make the shortcut use the Outlook icon...

You'll need to rename the file from a .txt to a .prf
Outlook.txt

Hi there,
Tomorrow i will try the prf option in my published application settings for outlook, just a few qustions
1: what way does this effect existing users who have profile setup etc, will this recreate it?
2: What happens if no mailbox is configured on the exchange server will it just give an error when they launch outlook?

Thanx

1. It will modify the existing profile but the config is likely to be the same so the user won't see any different.
2. I think it will pop up with the box where you have to select "Check Name/Server". Presumably users without a mailbox won't be running Outlook?
