Automation of installation of 365 mailbox to Outlook

We are currently looking at adding Office 365 mailboxes to Outlook. Is it possible to automatically apply a mailbox to Outlook 2010 and 2013 by using an automated process as opposed to typing in the server details in manually for every machine. The AD user name is different to the mailbox name, is there a way to automatically configure an automated process to add the mailbox users outlook.

If you are in a domain joined environment, you can use GPO to populate the username on Outlook's first run. The user will still have to complete the setup wizard and you need to make sure that Autodiscover is running correctly.

The relevant GPO setting is under User configuration -> Administrative templates -> Microsoft Outlook 2010/2013 -> Account Settings -> Exchange -> Automatically configure profile based on Active Directory Primary SMTP address. You will of course need the ADMX templates if you havent downloaded them already from Microsoft's download center.
