You will need the Office/Outlook Templates. See the links below to download the template and more information.

You would usually want outlook to authenticate using the login unless you have a kiosk where you want everyone to be able to use outlook using the same login (still doesn't make sense).

Thanks - I've already downloaded and opened the templates and read the petri article; I'm having trouble finding the right setting as described in the original question.
