In the past for me to give a new user OWA after creating their account in AD I've needed to set up an outlook profile first.  Is there anyway to create a new account in AD and have OWA work for it without setting up an outlook profile?

Yes,
Outlook web access does not require that the users have an outlook profile... or for that matter do they ever have to log on to the network..
Jusy create the user and then the mailbox and will be able to to access their mailbox through OWA

Want to see it happen.  Create the user, go to the property page and security tab and there won't be any security groups listed.

Then send a message to the user, or login to OWA as the user, and refresh the security tab.
