Set Microsoft Exchange Server as default



We're migrating several clients from POP connections to an ISP to an Exchange
2003 server. Is there an automatic way to configure the clients profile so
that the Microsoft Exchange Server connection is the default?

Thank you.

Microsoft uses text files with a .prf extension and a highly structured format to provide information to OUtlook that enables Outlook to create or modify a mail profile. You can create such .prf files with the Custom Installation Wizard or Custom Maintenance Wizard tools in the Office Resource Kit. For more details, including a variety of .prf deployment methods, read the excellent white paper "Configuring Outlook Profiles by Using a PRF File" at

The page at includes information on other profile tools and resources.
