AutoDiscover or Add Group Mailboxes in Outlook 2007

In our Citrix environment we clear profiles every hour. We have a group of users that need to access no only their email account but a group mailbox as well. We currently use a PRF file to set all of their Outlook settings so even after their profile is cleared they are not prompted to enter any information when they open Outlook. Here is my dilema, they also need to access a group mailbox, they can add the mailbox manually, but after they log off and their profile is cleared, they will have to add it again, everyday which is not really an option. My question is, can you Autodiscover and or deploy or auto add the Group Mailbox so the user does not have to?

In most cases this would be resolved by using roaming profiles for the users. Since this is the only setting you are looking to retain you could use Flex profile to import only the outlook reg settings for the user and when the user logs off those settings are saved on a network share for the users. Not only would that capture the group account but it would retain user settings, NK2 (email address autofill) and personlized signatures by exporting\importing the application data folder for the users.

Do you know which registry key stores this information? Or which directory/file in their profile retains it?

for the reg setting you can do HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12\outlook,
An the user files are C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Microsoft\Office
