Script to create/update Outlook 2007 Exchange account

Pierellie used Ask the Experts™
We're moving our office to a new building, along with that new domain controllers, AD acounts and the works. The exchange server for our organization is located in another office in canada. We access the server via rpc over http... allowing us to use "outlook anywhere"

 What I'd like to do it have a script run from gpo on a user login that will automatically create/reconfigure the users local outlook account settings. I want it to use the users smtp account info and also configure "Outlook Anywhere" values such as the "url to connect to my proxy server for exchange",  "Connect using SSL"=true, "connect only to proxy servers with this principal name in there certificate"=true and set the authentication value to basic authentication.

I downloaded the office 2007 gpo .adm file but it doesn't have objects for the tasks i'm trying to accomplish...

if theres anyway to do this let me know!
