Outlook profile settings ignored in Office 2010 SP1 using OCT

I was using the Office Customization Wizard to deploy a MST file for Office 2010 – pretty staight forward – it had some settings in there for for creating Outlook user profiles. It was working without problem. Then I added the Office 2010 Service Pack 1 MSP files to the Upgrade folder (slipstreaming). After this, the Outlook profile settings were no longer applied when a new install was done – whether they were defined setting in the OCT GUI or whether it was a PRF. It turns out that this is a known bug in Service Pack 1 for Office 2010 – see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2590591. My solution was to use the ‘Automatically configure profile based on Active Directory Primary SMTP address’ setting and leave the Outlook profile setting section blank.
