First I would like to inform im new to packaging.

Application - Office 2003
Packaging tool - Marimba

I packaged and deployed its working fine...now I have 2 issues.

Issue 1:

I want to know how to auto configure the outlook profile for the fresh install.

i.e if i install office 2003 on a fresh PC....if the user opens the outlook it shld open
his profile. I tried providing the information in MST as modify profile and also tried changing the registry setting hkcu\software\microsoft\office\11.0\setup\ importprf \\server\share\importprf.prf .no gud

What am i missing here.

Issue 2:

When I upgrade from office 2000 to office 2003, some of the settings are not migrated.

Eg., outlook spell check was enabled in 2000 after upgrade the option is unchecked
Signature enabled in 2000 after upgrade im able to see the signature, but the settings point to none.

Please help me in this issue,

Thanks in advance

You shouldn't repackage Office since it's a native msi. Also, you can use the custom installation wizard to configure settings.
