Outlook 2002 / problems with changing user profiles
Posted on 2003-02-19
I think I have this titled correctly. I hope, anyway.
I have a Dell Inspiron 8200 Laptop, running WinXP. I set up the user with the usual logons, etc., including Outlook 2002.
Now, however, the user has changed logons, let's say from userA to Auser. Not a big deal, s'far as logons go. Right?
Everything (that I can think of) has been set up and changed and switched over on the server (Win2K SBS and Exchange 2K). And yes, I've changed the Outlook profile setup on the laptop so that it's configured for Auser as the Exchange Server profile.
However, because Outlook was configured originally for use by userA, when my user logs on as Auser, and tries to access Outlook on his laptop, he's told he's not allowed to log on.
Does that make any sense??
I've changed everything (again, that I can think of) on the laptop to allow Auser profile full permissions to everything that had to do with the userA profile. I've even imported files from his old userA profile Outlook.
That's all well and good, but what in the world do I need to do to make sure he's allowed to log on to Outlook 2002 and able to use it properly?
I won't even get into my struggles with trying to set up this same user on the same laptop with a profile to access everything on the laptop when he's out of the office and off the network. My fondness for XP and laptops in general dwindles quickly as my frustration mounts.
