 Distribute Outlook Address book and set show this address list fir

I am deploying Office 2003 via SMS 2003 to newly built machines with no user
information or migration required.

I am trying to achieve 2 objectives: -

Add an Outlook Address book and show it listed in the addrees book drop down
list when the user logs in.

When the user clicks on To: or the address book a specified list is shown
and not the whole Global Address List.

I have created and OPS file from a profile that has the settings I require.
I am using the custom installation wizard. I select the OPS file on the
appropriate wizard screen and then select the radio button for new profile
and add the Outlook Address book as a setting. The installation using the
resultant MST does not add the OAB. Can you tell me if the above requirement
is possible to automate and is their a way of logging/debugging the process?

Many Thanks

I have now managed to get the Outlook Address Book added ok. I was using a
box that had Office installed previously and it appears that uninstalling
Office does not remove the default outlook profile. Now working on getting
the "show this address list" selection. Any help would be appreciated.

I think that I am in the same boat.  My boss doesn't want to be bothered
with the global address list when all he usually does is email folks
outside the company.  With Exchange 2k3Server on the backside, when the
TO: button is clicked, it automatically defaults to the Global address
list.  Does anyone know how to change that to default to your personal
contact list?

To do it manually open the address book and select tools options and select
the show adrress list first.

Programmatically it is probably a reg key or if not use a prf file with
Office Custom Setup Wizard. May also be possible to change properties of
mailbox in Active Directory.

None of the above -- it's neither a simple registry value, nor a setting that can be handled with a .prf file, not an AD setting. It is a profile-related registry setting that should be scriptable with the ProfMan library that comes with Redemption (http://www.dimastr.com/redemption/). Some third-party profile tools may also support it.
