Most settings for Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 can be efficiently configured, updated, and deployed to users by using the Office Customization Tool (OCT).

However, to modify existing settings or to configure settings that are outside the norm, such as those not included in the OCT, you can create and edit an Outlook profile file (PRF file), and then deploy that to your users by using the OCT, or by deploying the PRF file by itself.

A white paper is available that describes how to configure new settings by using a PRF file, and how to distribute these new settings to users. The following link opens the document in Microsoft Word: Outlook Deployment Options: Customizing a PRF File.
