I have Call centre agents who share a pool of Windows 95 workstations logging into WinNT 4.0 Server.
They need to be able to Log into any workstaion and access their e-mail through Outlook 97 v8.03.
Right now they are not using roaming NT accounts but their are some system policies in place to keep workstations consistent.
I don't want to set up profiles for every agent on each machine because agent turnover is high.  
Can roaming Outlook profiles be set up ???
Please Help !

Sorry for the blatant plug, but what you really want is a product called Profile Maker. Profiles don't allow for dynamic susbstitution of usernames etc, however PM does. You have one .ini file which looks mostly like a .PRF file (profile) and run Profile Maker with this ini file. This substitutes variables for you, ie. username when you login, and builds your profile for you.  So you only have one "profile" to maintain.  Works very easily with Exchange server, could also work with a POP3 server if passwords are kept the same, or entered by the user, or if username is password. You can download a trial from www.autoprof.com and the full version isn't that expensive.
Hope this helps, feel free to post further questions.
