    I didn't understand from your question if you want to change an existing profile or to define a new one.
    Anyway, there is a long list of parameters that Outlook 2003 supports.
    Does it help?
    Good luck.

      You can create an outlook exchange with this tool:

      (See my first post in that thread) But adding psts is not covered. If you find a way please post because i'm sure we will need that at some point in the future.

            We dont have exchange server. We only use pop3/imap on another mail server. Situation is that. some users have theis PST files on network disk: (P) and some times they change his workplace to another computer (roaming users). I need script which create/update profile "OUTLOOK" and setup PST location, pop3 / imap accounts. Passwords can user type. But user cannot setup account... Outlook expres working good...
            Thanks

              Roaming users = roaming problems.
              Is there any pattern in your users' migration? Or anyone can sit anywhere?

                  Hard to believe. With GPO you can change or impose certain settings on your computer. There are few ways to run things:
                  - software installation. Not your case;
                  - startup scripts. Machine related, not your case too;
                  - login scripts. This might be interesting. But it will be a tough task. You have to check if the user has a profile on the local machine, and if not, to create his Outlook profile too.
                  How many users and how many stations do you have?
                  I have here such a room, with almost 100 users sharing 7 computers ( their use is not intensive, they don't fight over a computer). The solution I used is roaming profiles. This way, you don't have to prepare the profiles beforehand on each computer and bother yourself with creating Outlook profiles on the fly.
                  What do you think of the issue?

                    I have not utilized this, however, you might want to look into this http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/or...513711033.aspx

                    If you have created a prf you can load it using
                    outlook.exe /importprf \\servername\exchange_config.prf

                    I am currently looking for a way to automate the loading (and reloading due to citrix issues) of PSTs and have not have much luck, save for autoit.
