Dear Sir,

Recently, my company have installed Microsoft Exchange 2013. The clients are using Outlook 2010. When a new user start the Outlook 2010 in first time. The Outlook will auto discover the exchange server and create a profile called Outlook.

Any method can make this default profile name as user's Display Name in AD during the first time Outlook startup?

Thank you.

With regards,
Wataw

Outlook AutoConfigure names the default profile 'Outlook'.
This is the "standard" name for it,  and there is no real way around that, other than using a different method of deploying an initial profile.

Such as deploying custom PRF files as shown at the URL below....   however, all the extra customization work just to use a special profile name for each user -- might not be worth it.
