I'm going to be de;ploying a lot of PC's in my office and I want them to all have similar settings even after I sysprep. Basically, I want to have Outlook start up on the any user with predefined settings as to save me from having to do them all individually. Is there a best way to do this? Is there an MS tool or GPO or can you recommend how this can be done?

Thanks

You need to use the Office Customization Tool from Microsoft to design your outlook deployment package BEFORE you install it. This will allow you a great deal of customization.
You then need to download the Office 2010 Group Policy ADM files and use Group Policy to fine tune.

You mean OCT to design before I install Office on the machine?
Is it very complicated or pretty straightforward?

Yes before you install office. Its menu driven and easy to follow.

I feel a bit stupid but I don't see the OCT tool.
Is it command line executable? Also, it only included on Enterprise editions. These boxes are licenced individually.
Can I still do this? Thank you.

Got it. Also, I read that Exchangeserver actually saves that data. I'm gonna test that but can you confirm that also? There are new settings but mostly the same.
