How can i set up Outlook options using VB or VBScript.
I am using a VBScript to import user files onto their new computers and run the prf file to configure outlook 2007.
We need do do some additional Outlook configuration. ie:
-Set time for "Schedule an automatic send/receive" to every 3 minutes
-Set the default address book to be the one found in the pst.
-Set the "Reading pane" to bottom
-Set junk email filter to High.

I have looked at the Outlook object references online and cant find any examples (that i understand) that access these outlook settings with Vba or Script.
I am an experienced scripter and dabble in VBa.
Can anyone point me to some examles of accessing Outlooks standard options?
I prefer vbScript but anything would be helpfull.
Or
am i missing some settings that can be configured in the prf file?

Hi, i gallichan.

Unfortunately this isn't possible for everything you listed.  Microsoft hasn't exposed the necessary properties/methods for scripting items 1, 2, and 4.  Item 3 is possible by simulating mouse clicks.
