For some background information we are running windows server 2000 and exchange server 5.5. Client machines are running windows XP with office 2003. The username is the same as the alias in exchange 5.5 so that should be OK. User accounts are setup to be roaming profiles.
The overall goal is to standardize systems throughout our organisation by using group policy and other elements (such as PRF profiles) to mould the user account as it were. So as a default we want outlook to be already setup and configured.
I Want to configure PRF profiles to automatically setup and configure the following outlook elements:
- Add exchange account
- Set archive location to z:\archive.pst - z:\ being the home drive
- Add the archive as a data file in options so that it's in the left hand pain.
Also how can I roll this out, I need this to be setup for all users so as a default, without configuration, they will have there exchange email account configured, reading pane in the correct place etc.
Any help would be appreciated.
