Exchange OST files on Virtual Desktops

Is there a way to automate disabling offline files in Outlook? As far as I know you have to change from cached mode and disable offline files manually.

For virtual desktops this is not appropriate as OST files are taking up valuable space. We would like to have all virtual desktops running by default in online mode so the OST file is never created.

Can this be done?

Setup is
Exchange 2010 SP1
Outlook 2007
