Friends,
Is there a way to automate email account setup (Outlook) for Windows XP Pro
workstations? We have users that need access to email at different
locations. Currently the first time they logon to a machine we just go
there and setup an email account, but it would be really helpful if the
account would set itself up tied to the user's logon ID. Any help will be
appreciated!

Outlook.. what? 2000, XP, 2003?

Doesn't matter too much - make a PRF for them, have them run it to setup the
account.. Or make a custom install that includes the setup for the default
profile (it's part of the creation of the PRF anyway..)
