Setting a users name when using a .PRF file in Outlook 2010

I am looking into how best to automate the setup of users email accounts when we migrate to Outlook 2010.

Specifically, I am creating IMAP accounts. We do NOT use Exchange. We have a third party email server. I can get it to do most of what I want, but cannot work out how to have it populate the 'Full Name' field. I can use %USERNAME% to setup the username and email address, but ideally would like each users full name auto-populated as well.

With over 1000 users, having them manually amend their account settings afterwards is just asking for trouble!

The exact filed I want to populate is: In the Office Customisation Tool > Outlook > Add Accounts > (open an IMAP account using Modify button) > More Settings... > On the General Tab > Full Name.

Many thanks to anyone who can help with this.
