Create a batch file containing the NET USE command.

Then you should be able to send it out as an attachment via email to your end-users.  When users click and run the "bat" file attachment, after clicking through the various security alerts, your NET USE command should be executed on their machine, mapping the drive.

Type NET USE /HELP in a DOS command window to see all the options for mapping a network drive.

NET USE \\myserver\mydrive X:

Open in new window
