installing Outlook 2003 using GPO

I just installed Outlook 2003 client on some computers and have many
more to go. I would like to push Outlook to the rest using GPO. How
can this be done? We also just upgraded to 2003 server.

Assuming you are running Active Directory, it is pretty straightforward.  

The first thing you will need to do, is create an Administrative 
Installation point for Outlook 2003.  You do this by running Outlook 2003 
setup, with /a (setup.exe /a).  It will prompt you for a share location, 

Once that is done, you create a GPO, and create a software package on the 
Computer Settings section.  When creating the package, it will prompt you for 
the share location, that was created during the Administrative Installation.

Then you apply this GPO.  I actually create a new OU in Active Directory, 
and put all my computer accounts in there, and then apply the GPO to that OU 
only.  That prevents software from being pushed out to my servers, etc.

The following links should help:

Microsoft support article for deploying a certain MSI update, but you can 
use the same steps for Outlook:

Once you have the GPO setup and running, I would test it on one or two 
machines first, before adding others.  Drop to command line on the PC's, and 

gpupdate /force

It should ask you to restart the computer, to process the computer settings. 
 On PC restart, you will see Outlook get installed.  If it doesn't ask to 
restart, run the gpupdate command again (sometimes I have had to run the 
command a couple of times to get the PC to see the changes).

How do I export WORD or PUBLISHER files to AOL instead of Outlook
I would like to imbed docs and pubs in AOL, not OUTLOOK, but I can't figure out how to do it. It can't be done. Your only option would be to use Outlook Express with your AOL (assuming that can still be done) and send them that way. And to be honest with you, I'm not 100% certain that will work. I dumped AOL several years ago so I don't know if they still support OE or that that process will work with Publisher. -- JoAnn Paules MVP Microsoft [Publisher] ~~~~~ How to ask a question "Ellen" <Ellen@discussions.micro...

Outlook 2000 upgrade problems
I'm currently on Outlook 2000 SP-3 (, (but Belarc says I've still got v 9.0.6604) having installed a proffered "improvement" from Microsoft. I can see several changes, including a) an inability now to display new address book entries in the form "Smith, John" rather than John Smith; and b) an inability to send emails from any of my mailboxes - it now insists on sending from my default mailbox on behalf of the other mailbox. Can anyone advise whether, and how, I can revert to the previous version? Thanks in anticipation ...

Downloading email into Outlook on Windows XP into each person's profile
How do you configure Outlook 2002 so that when you download email, it is accessible to all users, regardless of their pprofile settings (Win XP)? If I download the email while in my profile, my wife cannot see the email I downloaded when in her profile. Why? Because at the moment you are using separate .PST files to store your data. You'll need to set up a shared .PST file for e-mail and put it where each of you can access it from your Windows profile. See for examples. -- Jocelyn Fiorello MVP - Outlook *** Messages sent to my e-mail a...

How to tell what Updates have been Installed?
I just tried the Microsoft AutoUpdate and it says there are no updates for your software at this time. I then clicked on the "View Installed Update" button and shows no history. Just blank page. My Entourage version is 12.0.1 and I think this is the current version. Should the 12.0.0 to 12.0.1 update be displayed on the installed updates page? How can this update be added to the blank installed updates page? There were some issues with 12.0.1, obviously--it doesn't show on my machine either. I don't know for sure, but I would expect that 12.1 will be a combo updater...

Outlook 2003 Deleting Deleted Items!
This annoying problem is driving me nuts! I'm running Outlook 2003 w/SP1 (Exchange 2000) on Windows 2000 Pro w/SP4. Recently, Outlook has been automatically emptying my Deleted Items folder to Recover Deleted Items! I've checked my Rules as well as AutoArchive settings but can't find the cause of these mysterious deletions. The problem persists even after I uninstalled/reinstalled Office 2003 Pro. Actually after I did this, Outlook behaved itself for a whole day but the problem returned the next. Sometimes after recovering my deleted items, I can find my Deleted Item...

Images not recognized by IE (or Outlook's browser)
I created a Web page with MS Publisher 2003 that includes two JPEG images. I can see them just fine with IE6, but when I put the cursor on them and right click, I do NOT get an image context menu. It's as if they're not there. This does not happen with other sites, from which I can save images freely. I tried viewing the site with Outlook 2003 and had the same problem. When I use Firefox, however, the images behave normally and can be downloaded. I tried adjusting security, firewalls, etc. but nothing helped. MS browsers do not recognize the images as images, even though they do...

Should I be using VLOOKUP and if so, how in this case?
This is surely simple, yet I am not getting it right. I want to enter in a three letter code, and with each code is a value. For example if I enter in IMM into colum D6, the value will be .45 i F6. IF enter in CRE, in Column D7 the Value for this code is .85 i F7. I want thiese value to be entered automaticaly each time I ente in a code. I will have about 10-15 different codes, each with a correspondin value. I thought to create a table of the codes and values on another sheet i this workbook and use VLOOKUP. Is that the thing to do? If so, how will the code work. Please keep this qui...
