Well you sort of could - two obvious methods - GPO applied login script
specific to the OU, that accesses custom details - either that or edits
the prf file.

Or clever ADSI scripting that derives the OU, and applies custom files,
or edits the prf file - all eminently doable.

Or rather than using the OU, you could just use ADSI scripting to access
some already configured parameter in AD, concerning the appropriate
exchange server.

Have you looked at the zip file, and read the docs? I'm struggling to
imagine something that could be much simpler.

What are you having problems with? And what does your script / modprof
invocation currently look like?

Is your OU structure going to imply exchange server / mailbox placement
though? Wouldn't it be easier and more elegant to either use some AD
parameter, or customise one, rather than using your OU structure for
this? Or do you have other reasons for using your OU structure as such?
