saving and distributing a customized desktop

If there a way to customize one desktop and then copy the file to the other 
workstations so that they are set up the same way?

I get calls all day from our users asking that I customizes their outlook to 
include some of the modifications I've made to my desk.

We have Exchange Server and Outlook 2003 SP2.

I don't see how this is an Outlook question.  The Windows desktop is not 
related to Outlook.

My question is customizing outlook, not windows. Sorry if I wasn't making 
that clear. I've set up shortcuts in Outlook to retrieve canned emails on 
our server with folder links to many of these .msg files.

I guess I still don't understand the question, then.

I have added a new menu in Microsft Outlook in addition to file, edit, view 
etc. The menu is called "canned emails. There are many mail items underneath 
this new menu that link to .msg files I have save on our server.I use these 
emails as template to send out to business clients so I don't have to retype 
the email each time. Many of these emails have attachments.

Some of the other users in the office want my canned email folder. I end up 
going to desk after desk adding links.

I thought maybe there was a file where these setting were stored in like a 
pst file that I could copy to other desks

This still has nothing to do with Outlook.  It doesn't matter what types of 
files are in the folders.  If you want drives mapped automatically, that's a 
Windows issue and you should ask in a forum for the version(s) of Windows you 
use.

Dear Microsoft, The main reason I don't use Money is because of the advertisements. It has ads for various brokerage services etc and also a lot of ads on the MSN pages.
