Outlook Profile Not Changing With Login

By steveb ·
Running Outlook/Office 2000 on Win98SE. I have one machine that no matter who is logged in to the network, the Outlook user profile defaults to a certain person. I have checked to make sure that "prompt for a user profile" is selected, and that Outlook and not Outlook Express is the default mail handler. I have un-installed Office 2000 and re-installed with no effect.

Could that one Win98 machine be set NOT to maintain individual profiles? (I don't mean the Outlook setting; I mean the overall system setting.) If so, it would explain why it behaves the same no matter who logs on.

Just a thought. I hope it helps.

It may be the case that Outlook was installed before you changed that machine to individual settings, and as a result there is an Outlook profile in the default user profile, which propagated to all users. If you change the default for one user, does it change it for all?

If not, log on each user in turn, and change their mail profile setting.

If changing one users default changes them all, you are not really set for using individual settings on the box. Back up any individual information, then change the setting to all users use the same profile, uninstall Outlook, change the setting to individual profiles, then reinstall Outlook.

Good luck.
