In an automated installation of MS-Office I try to make Outlook use an existing PST-file on its first start via MSP configuration but Outlook ignores the file and creates a new file with a counter "(2)". How can I tell Outlook to use an existing file in its first start?
what I've tried:
Office 10 is installed but Outlook not yet started for the first time
create an MSP-file (via
setup /Admin) which configures an acccount in a profile "profilename" and has the name "email@example.com"
msiexec /p myconfig.msp
copy the file
firstname.lastname@example.org - profilename.pstto
%LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Outlook\email@example.com - profilename.pst
Outlook creates a new file
firstname.lastname@example.org - profilename(2).pstand ignores my file
email@example.com - profilename.pst
%LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Outlook is empty, i.e. the file doesn't exist, Outlook creates the file without counter:
firstname.lastname@example.org - profilename.pst. The configuration of the MSP-file ist working properly but Outlook ignores the existing file.
This problem occurs with IMAP-accounts. It seems that Outlook handles pst differently, depending whether they correspont to an POP or an IMAP account.
