Automate Outlook profile creation
Posted 11 September 2007 - 10:14 AM
I'd like to automate Outlook profile creation, but I can't seem to find a lot of information on this. What is the best way to go about this? I'd like to avoid purchasing third party software if possible, my company can't spend a lot of money on this.

I looked up some Microsoft articles about using a prf file, but if i push that out every time, then it will keep making new profiles every time someone signs on to the same computer.

- checks if the .prf exists on the users home drive
- checks the default profile name (if it's Outlook we have to fix it)
- changes some reg keys so that the .prf is loaded when outlook starts next
It's all fairly easy to do and can be done in batch script even, but our users have local admin privledges so it makes it straight forward
