Now I can know what my external IP is!!!

Default MAPI profiles after using Office Customization Tool

We are rolling out a new windows 7 desktop (via sccm task sequence) and one of the packages is the newly released Office 2010. I have been using OCT to modify the outlook profile via a PRF file. We want to take advantage of “cached mode” so that is one of the setting I use the PRF and OCT to set. What if I wanted to change the behavior of one machine, so that it does not use “cached mode”? Do I have to re-install office?

Seems that the default mapi profile is created by importing the PRF file. In windows 7, this registry setting can be found here:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\14.0\User Settings\{GUID}\Create\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Setup\ImportPRF

And in Windows 2008 R2 X64 it is here:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\14.0\User Settings\{GUID}\Create\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Setup\ImportPRF

Just have this registry key (using 8.3 names) point to a PRF with different settings and the new MAPI profiles will use this PRF.
