Updating Outlook with a PRF

April 14, 2011 Leave a comment

We use a pop based E-mail service so do not have a global address list in Outlook.  I recently set up Active Directory as a LDAP based address book and wanted to send the setup to all of my existing clients through login script.  I read many articles on how to create a prf, but when I went to import it with outlook.exe /importprf , it kept creating a profile called “Outlook Default Profile” instead of updating the current profile.  The problem in the end was that I was typing Outlook.exe /importprf update.prf instead of outlook.exe /importprf c:\update.prf.  The importprf command switch requires the full path of the file to work, otherwise it creates a blank profile.

Hope this Helps!
