Thanks for the help! Hmm, I am not sure I understand this... my server is "surg-vm-test-1" but I am not confident that I am doing this correctly and I am lost when I get to "Section 6"

My mailbox store is "Mailbox Store (SURG-VM-TEST-1)" default of course.

do not change section 6 and below

(microsoft say do not touch it :P)

in outlook 2003, PRF file is still associated with outlook
in outlook 2007 there is an auto exchange config for anyone on the domain
