Win2k multiple user profiles

By steveh ·
I'd like to know if we could logon win2k using an account and setup multiple Outlook2k profiles for other Windows users, without them to logon. So that when they do logon the first time they would be able to use outlook.

Best Regards.

Win2k multiple user profiles

by Parbo In reply to Win2k multiple user profi ...

Outlook express has that option (technet article Q171301), however i'm not sure if you are using the coporate edition in a domain. If so i doubt that you will be able to do that since its going to violate your security. The mail is kept in the usershome directory which you get access to by login on with the username & password. If you want to log on to w2k with for instance user Johndoe and want to give Janedoe access to her email under that login name then you have to assign Johndoe full access to janedoe's homefolder. I'm not sure if there's a 3rd party tweak/program that can help you out with this.

Using the administrator's account, you can logon and create the different mail profiles. Then set Outlook to ask for a mail profile when it opens rather than using a default profile. When the users want access to their mail they will be promted forthe user account and then a password. Make sure that the users all have their mail sent to the server mailbox and not to the PC inbox ( check the delivery page of the profile's properties dialog box).
