exchange and outlook 2k

By Stevan ·
I have Exchange Server 5.5 SP 4 we use Outlook 2k as the client software. I have a few users that move from PC to PC. Everyone has a user name and password. Is there a way to make it so that when a use logs on to the PC the profile for their outlookwill dynamically change for the user name that is logged on?

Thanks in advance for the help!

Which OS are you running on the workstations? Generally enabling profiles will do what you want. However, you can also configure outlook to prompt for a user when the program is started.

In Outlook, go to Toos/options click the mail services tab, then select Prompt for a profile to be used.

There is no way to do this other than to enable user profiles on the workstations. Newer, business-class OS's like Win2K and XP Pro do this by default, but if you have Win9x or Me, you have to do this manually by going to each workstation, enablinguser profiles, then logging on as the user and then setting up their Outlook connections manually. I think you can also use system policies to do this. Once it's done, it will stay that way for each individual user of that workstation. In order toensure that this works when users move from PC to PC, you have to use roaming profiles on the network. To find articles that talk about how to use roaming profiles on your network for different workstation OS configurations, I recommend going to the Microsoft Knowledgebase online and searching for "roaming profiles" - there are a lot of different articles depending upon your configuration. Hope this helps!

Use roaming profiles. There is no other way of accomplishing this.
You can ebable roaming profiles from NT Users manager. On win9x clients this also requires making sure that each workstation logs on to the domain, which is done in the client for Microsoft network properties.

1. Use Outlook Web Access.

2. Use Mailbox (not a *.pst).
