Question on MS Outlook

By Yuens ·
I have one Windows 2000 Prof. computer which used by 3 users. Each user has a logon account and profile settings in the computer but they use the same exchange email account "a.b.c". My problem is that as I setup the account for the first user. It is fine. When I setup the account for the second user, he has no problem with logging into the Windows 2000 Prof. When I open the MS Outlook 2000 first time, it will create a new profile for the second user. What can I do so that once I setup the MS Outlook for the first time, then I can apply the same settings for the second, the third user provided that these users use the same email account and settings for the Outlook.

Create a default user with the Outlook settings already set up. To do this you would set up a dummy user 'abc' then log in as that user and set up outlook. Log off that user and log in as admin. Rename 'Default User' to 'Default User.1' and rename 'abc' to 'Default User'. Then right click the Default User folder > Permissions and select 'Allow Inheritable permissions...' and also remove 'abc' from the permissions.

If you have troubles see this microsoft kb article http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q305709

Just another note - The default user will only apply to users who have never logged in before. So if your 3 users have previously logged in you will have to delete their profiles and log in again as that user.

To answer you comment about the seperate desktop settings - When you create the default user set up ONLY the things you want in common. The default user is only a starting point for the new profiles, any changes made by each user will only apply tothat user, not the other 2. On the converse if you WANT to share desktop items you would need to add it to the 'All users' desktop.
