Mail Settings - non-OE Installation Question

I don't mean to say this isn't about Outlook Express - rather that I think
it's more a registry/install question. But I was instructed to post this
question here instead of the windowsxp.general n-group.

I have a client who we've just set up domain-webhosting for and now that the
site's gone active I wondered about how to avoid producing a "How To" with
illustrations - the client is a technophobe when it comes to nuts-and-bolts
questions. While I can certainly produce a good tutorial for her with
images showing exactly what she'd see, I wondered if it wouldn't be easier
to just make a .reg file and email it to her to save, exit OE and execute
it. I figure I'm going to be on the phone with her anyway, no matter how
good the doc is, and it occurred to me.

How does one go about this? Thanks.

what i would suggest is to create the account settings the export the
settings as a .aif file then mail that.
