Roaming XP Users w/Office 2003 in NT 4.0 Domain

Two part question:

1.  I have XP users set up on NT 4.0 to roam and therefore files created by Office appear on the server in their profile directory in My Documents but they also show up on the local machine.  How do I stop them from appearing on the local machine?

2.  I'm trying to set up Outlook 2003 on the XP machines to allow any roaming user with appropriate Exchange 5.5 rights to log in.  How do I set up Outlook 2003 to provide appropriate access based on the individual roaming user?

Thank you!

1. You must move the My Documents folder outside of the Profile. Roaming profile just synches, and that includes My Documents. When placing the My Documents for example on a personal network share, you've resolved this issue.

2. Outlook 2003 isn't authorative in an Exchange environment. If Exchange is set-up securely, then you should have no problem at all.

1.  Thank you for that info.  It helps me understand what happens with roaming.  Before receiving your response I turned off XP's caching of profile info for roaming users and that seems to have prevented duplication on the local machine.

2.  I'm trying to set up XP with no local user profiles, only an Admin profile.  I'd like to have the Domain User name cause Outlook to connect to the related Exchange mailbox.  Is that possible?

1. Which means 1 is solved?

2. If you run a Domain it actually is the best way to go. This is because you can integrate an Exchange mailbox into a Domain user.
You might want to check the following resource:
