Outlook PRF deployment for multiple users. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys

    We are migrating a company across to our exchange (Exchange 2010 / Clients Outlook 2007)and am looking for a way to be able to use a custom prf to add their new mailbox for all the individual users.

    The way I was thinking of doing was having multiple prf's for each individual user and then /importprf via a logon script.

    However the mailbox names need to be setup to point to users display name (surname, first name).  I can't use the %username% variable as the usernames are shortened.

    Is there an easier way to automate and create mulitple prfs with the mailbox name being populated for each individual? I have a CSV of all the users display names which will be their new mailbox names. But need to find a way to create individual prfs with mailbox changed for each user and then the prf to be their %username% on their current domain if that makes sense this is so that logon script can look into a location and find %username%.prf and then import it for outlook?

    Any ideas please unless I am over complicating.
