Outlook 2000 as a Win2K Service

I'm using Basta Computing's AppToService to run MS outlook 2000 (not express) as a NT service in Win2000. I already have a profile (.pst file) in my "document and settings" ->"user"->"local settings"->"application data"->"microsoft"-> "outlook" folder. OutLook starts with my profile when i run it from the startup menu. But when i tried to run the service using the "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OUTLOOK.EXE" command line after i'm logged on, it starts up the office 2000 installation process and after i cancelled that it asked me to enter my name, email address, smtp serve, etc... like starting a new profile. I want to know if there is any command line option that would allow me to select the specific profile to use.

Most services run as the SYSTEM user. And therefore won't have access to your PST file.

Does this AppToService program allow you to specify which user to run the services as - if it does you should change it to your normal user logon (the one you created your PST file with)
