Outlook 2003 Exchange script adding a second mailbox

I have been searching for the past few days in an attempt to solve this problem.

We have a client that is running SBS2003 and the PC's all run outlook 2003.  They office manager decided the office needed a generic mailbox company@company.com and everyone needs to check that email and be able to respond to it.

They have a fairly large office that is located about a hundred miles from my office.  I would rather not make the drive to manually add the mailbox to every users outlook.

I do not want to use a mail enabled distribution group because the employees need to see what messages have been read by their co-workers.

What I am looking for is either a VBScript, VBA, Or anything else that would automate adding this mailbox to the employees outlook.

I have use the Office Resource Kit and created a PRF file but did not see an area where I can specify a second mailbox to open.

Thanks for all of you help.

Not easy as it is in the HKU registry key in:

HKEY_USERS\S-xxx-xxx-xxxx-xxx-xx\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles\Outlook

You will need Outlook redemption.

Here is the code example as well.

I have not had much experience with Redemption.  I do have it installed on my PC.  If I make the script will I have to install redemption on all of the computers that will need to run the script?

I have decided to go ahead and manually add the mailboxes.  I will sit and learn Redemption sometime in the future.  I appreciate the feedback.  Points to you.
