  • Automate account setup in Exchange 2010

    We are in the process of migrating from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010. Im looking for instructions on how to automate account setup on the clients. I realize it auto discovers the user accounts but is there a wayto make it so when users login to Windows account the Outlook account is setup automatically without any requirements from the user. When they open Outlook it is ready to go. Is this possible?

    For your migration phase, nothing needs to be done. Outlook will automatically redirect.

    If you are using Outlook 2007 or higher then autodiscover will configure Outlook for you automatically. Older versions you will need to look at some of the profile management tools and scripts - there are 100s of them as it was a common problem until autodiscover came along.

      to expand on sembee's response ever so slightly:

      Autodiscover will, very easily, quickly, and simply, configure outlook the first time you logon and use it.
      However, you'll still need to go through that first OOB experience..
