Outlook 2013 profile issues

Exchange 2013
Windows 2012 rdsh servers

I am attempting through the use of a prf file to automatically configure outlook for rdsh users. Users all have a mandatory profile. Opening outlook without a profile is fine and autodiscover finds the mailbox based on the users email address.

However I would like to skip the welcome to outlook each time a user logs on. A prf file has been set to point to the server name and %username%. Outlook is unable to find the mailbox this way.

Any ideas?

I think you need to add the Outlook Address Book service. And one more thing add it from Outlook later, otherwise Outlook will use the default services and file locations.

Resolved by a group policy - edited zeroconfigexchange value to 1. Which accepts all autodiscover defaults and doesn't prompt user
