You can set the mail server to use in the custom install wizard. Just
put the %username% variable in, and Outlook will open to the logged on
users' profile when they first open it.
The way I deploy it in the GP scenario is creating the above MST file,
and putting the setup files on a server share. You then create an Office
installation instance in the Computer Configuration settings (
GPO>Computer Config>Software Settings> Software Installation>New Package
If you choose it as "Assigned", it will automatically get installed (I
apply this GPO to computer names in the organization)
On the modifications tab, point to the MST file the CIW created. Try
this on a test machine first (remember, you can type 'gpupdate /force'
at the command line of the test GPO client to automatically update the
GPO applied to it. 
Let me know if this helps
