make it easy (concerning outlook) for users to jump around between PCs on an SBS 2003 R2 domain

When you add a user / PC and then the user logs in, outlook is ready to go for that user.

but if that user logs into another machine on the domain and start outlook, you have to walk through the startup wizard to enter the server and username.

is there a way to skip that  so a user can log in at any machine and outlook is ready to go?  Roaming profiles?  That's a pain, right?

on sbs domains, the exchange server is (most likely) going to be the sbs box so the name is known.  and you are logged in with the email address / domain username.  seems for small businesses, the questions could be auto answered like for the user specifically assigned to a new pc.
