Office MSP file and Office 365


i'm searching a way to deploy office 2010 with a msp file ( used from setup.exe /admin ) wich configure a new profile for outlook. From here we all know how to..


But two thing is problematic for me now :

We don't have an Exchange server inside the company, we opted for Office 365 so autodiscovery must do its job = can we configure the msp file to check an url and not a local server ?

We don't have any tmg and upn are not configured so all our user are identifying like this : user@companyA.com. We have at least 10 different company hosted.

So my great problematic is = Can we configure a new profile for outlook wich will identify to the web access as user@randomcompany.com ?


Or if you have any script wich can do that it will be great ! ( KACE is used )

We are currently migrating to Office365 and have to use autodiscovery as well. The only way I could find to pre-configure a profile is to specify a server - which you can't do for autodiscovery. I had to create an msp that blows out all current and new Outlook profiles on the machine so we could use autodiscover and script that out after users are migrated. This involded having to manually create a .prf file for the profile as by default changes using the OCT do not affect existing profiles. There's a line in there to change somewhere...think it was this one: ModifyDefaultProfileIfPresent=True.

Otherwise we had previously configured our Outlook to manually point to our Exchange server and once users were migrated it would error out of course - and need a server name. Kind of a pain.
