Hi

We're upgrading from Outlook 2003 to 2010 and we have a single Exchange 2003 server on our domain.

With Outlook 2003 I had created and applied a custom CMW file so that when users launched Outlook 2003 for the first time the setup of their Exchange account was completely automated - no input required whatsoever. Not a single mouse click.

Now with Outlook 2010 a new user has to go through a process of quite a few clicks and having to agree to what looks like an ActiveX control in order to setup their account. Don't get me wrong Outlook 2010 does setup the new account - based on the user's windows-username and it automatically finds our Exchange server but.......

Is there a way to make the setup of a users Exchange account completely automatic?

Many thanks, Matt

PS: I have already applied a Microsoft 'fix' to allow Outlook 2010 to work with Exchange 2003
