No Outlook with Roaming Profile

My company uses Windows 2000 advanced server and MS Exchange 5.5.
I have assigned roaming profiles for all the members of an organizational unit and set up a group policy that provides a uniform desktop and start menu etc.
The roaming profile works ok except that it does not include the personal MS Outlook settings for an individual.
Every time a user logs on to a different machine, MS Outlook has to be set up for them on that machine.
Is there a method that allows the individual MS Outlook settings and mail boxes to transport with the roaming profile.

You should try to use the custom installation wizard that is part of the Office 2000 resource kit for download on the MS website. You can simply solve the problem by having it automatically choose an outlook profile based upon the username. that's what I do in any case

Do you use one profile or individule profiles for each user?  Is the profile a mandatory profile or not?  Usually the outlook profile will go with the user if you set up a profile for each person.  I set up a share like \\server\profiles then I assign a path to each user in the mmc like this \\server\profiles\%username% which creates individule profiles for each user.  If you want to start with a template profile you can copy it into each persons profile directory after creation.  I hope this helps
