Outlook 2010 Setup

This is rather trivial, but if anyone could help out I'd appreciate it.

I created an admin file to setup Office 2010, along with the user's e-mail account.

When I use that to install Office, and subsequently launch Outlook, in the left hand column at the top it'll say "user@mycompany.com".  When I do a manual install of Office, and launch Outlook, it sets it up so that the name at the top of the left column says "Mailbox - User Name".

How can I setup my customized installation so that it'll show up as "Mailbox - User Name" instead of just the user's e-mail address?

Thanks.

Thats part of the
 Microsoft Outlook 2010>Tools|Account Settings>Exchange
Automatically Configure Profile Based on Active Directory Primary SMTP address, Option.

When enabled it auto configures the Account according to its primary SMTP Address.

As far as I know theres no way to change this behavior, if you want to use auto configure.

I find it quite helpful in an Organization though as many staff, especially new staff, can quickly view their email address when providing it to osomeone for corespondance.
