APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Outlook 97 Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q172073

SUMMARY

The More Information section of this article contains the complete text of the Outlook.prf file that ships with Microsoft Outlook 97. This file is located in the Office folder on the Microsoft Office 97 CD-ROM and the Microsoft Outlook 97 CD-ROM. Your version of this file may vary slightly depending on which version of Outlook you have. Setup puts a copy of this file in the Windows folder on your hard disk.

Administrators can customize the Outlook.prf file before installing Outlook, or after installing but before the user starts Outlook for the first time. Administrators can also use Outlook.prf in conjunction with Newprof.exe to automate the creation of messaging profiles. A unique Outlook.prf file is required for every unique messaging profile.

; Copyright (C), Microsoft Corporation, 1996.
;
; The following PRF file is included as an example of how to create a PRF
; file that will configure Outlook users with Exchange Server.  Section 1,

; cause Exchange services to crash. Be very careful when editing to ensure
; property values match their property types. NOTE: The HomeServer setting
; for the Microsoft Exchange Server must be filled in before using this
; file.
