Can anyone advise on a KACE/script method to silent deploy IMAP settings (for a test mailbox) to an existing Outlook for Mac 2011 installation on a Mac?

The settings to deploy are:

  • email address
  • password
  • username
  • type: IMAP
  • incoming server
  • override default port: 
  • use SSL
  • outgoing server
  • override default port: 
  • use SSL
It appears these settings are stored in /Users/Username/Documents/Microsoft User Data/Office 2011 Identities/Main Identity/Data Records/Mail Accounts/0T/0B/0M/0K but this generated file is hashed to protect the password information. 

All info I've found so far relates to deploying the actual Office application and then connecting to a MS Exchange server, neither of which are applicable in this case. I just want users to open their existing Outlook application and see the test mailbox configured.

Can you replace the default file with the one with the details?

Is it possible to create the settings from a shell script?
