Outlook login

We use  a Nt Server with Exchange 5.5.
Is it possible that the user who is logged in automatically have access to his mailbox without select profile .

But of course.

If the user is the only user of the machine then simply turn off the "prompt for profile" option within Outlook. (Tools >> Options >> Mail Services) and make sure the desired profile is used by default.

If there are multiple users for the machine simply create a shortcut and use a command line option to specify the profile to be used. The target should be the path of Outlook.exe followed by "/profile <profile name>" (i.e. "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OUTLOOK.EXE" /profile "postmaster")

Note: for this command line option to work the profile name must be only one word.

Good luck,
Jhana

I wish you had been more specific I would not have wasted your/my time. I do not know how (or if it is possible) to do this with an NT login script.

Your question is not very clear but i think I know what you mean. You want the user upon logging into the nt server to have outlook open to there mailbox without them having to press any buttons. Create a shortcut in c:windows\startmenu\programs\startup
to outlook.  If you have to choose what profile outlook opens to you can create the shortcut to the spefic profile by right clicking - new - shortcut:  The path is C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OUTLOOK.EXE" /profile "profilename" if you do not have to choose a short cut to outlook.exe is fine.  
If this does not answer your question then can you please restate your question more speficly.

Hope this helps

Use Nt's roaming profiles. Create in C. Panel\mail & fax's applet a profile called Exchange settings (for exemp.) for the first user, then each user, that logs on will get his/her own mailbox. You don'nt need NT-scripts.
