Roaming Profiles & Email not saving

By junk ·

I have set up a roaming profile on a windows xp pro machine.(latest sp/patches etc.)
All works well except for email messages dissapearing after logging out and back in again. Email Account settings seem to stay. I am using outlook express 6.

I have tryed resetting the profile from scratch as well. And in the mean time I have had to set the store directory to a local folder. This seems to work.
But I really need the messages stored in the roaming profile, which is otherwise working OK.

Has anyone ever seen this before or does anyone have a solution to this problem?

Does the user have sufficient rights in the directory where you stored the profile?

Yes, I have even tryed setting the permissions/ownership on the folder the dbx files are supposed to be stored, But i don't get a permission denied error either.
So no error messages associated either.

Try this.
First I want to advise you if this is for business purposes to use outlook and not outlook express.
second with outlook create pst files so you can work around with your roaming profile. and the pst stored on a user directory on the server or shared directory on the server.

This has nothing to do with security problems....if you did the security good ;-)))
