Creating an Outlook Profile for RPC over HTTP client

I'm looking for a programatic way to create an Outlook profile using RPC

over HTTP for full Exchange Client connecting over the Internet.

I currently have a 24 page document explaining the process of creating the

Outlook profile using the Mail utility in Control Panel, but I know my

customers need a programatic method of making the profile quickly and

correctly.

Does anyone have a start of an example program of how to do this or

something similar using C# or VB?

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

http://office.microsoft.com/search/redir.aspx?assetid=HA011403051033&QueryID=pHm7c_60I&respos=3

The page at http://www.slipstick.com/exs/olroam.htm includes information on

other profile tools and resources.

Other programmatic methods would involve the ProfMan library included with

Outlook Redemption or Extended MAPI, which is not supported in managed code.
