How do I automate connections to mailboxes?

I work in an Active Director environment with an Exchange 2003 server. Outlook is in Exchange mode, and archives (AutoArchive) is set to archive to users' homedir (H:\Outlook\archive.pst). Most users also connect to and use corporate mailboxes which I must manually connect to with the "Open additional mailboxes" dialog in the e-mail account configuration screen (Tools:E-mail accounts:More Settings -- "Advanced" tab).

Users move from computer to computer within the building, depending on the needs for the day. Accordingly, I have to map archives and the additional mailboxes every time a user goes to a computer which they haven't used before (or which was re-imaged since the last time they used it).

Is there a way to script the mailbox connections? Is there a tool out there somewhere that I can use to automatically create those mailbox connections? Anyone?
