I have copied a "base line" profile to c:\doumenst and settings\Default User.

most things appear to work such as desktop shortcuts start menu items and drive mappings

Problems appear with Microsoft office, Default file locations rever to the local My documenst directory, I have tried inserting the enviroment variables %HomeDrive% %homepath% in to the default file locations option field, so that the home directory is picked up from the profile, but this does not work, and the Office applications complain about it not being a valid path, if I open up a CMD shell and type echo %homedrive%%homepath% evaluates the variables correctly, however. the default file location is always set to the path entered when setting up the baseline profile, which is not viable for our  setup.

outlook- this still requiers a manual setup for each user, if i configure outlook for the baseline profile, the obviously the next user to logon and inherit the profile gets access denied message when i try to open the default users mailbox, is there a way reound this> (ie configure the profile so that it automatically opens the correct mailbox in outlokk>


Even when a user has logged onto a machine, there name does not appear in the users and passwords applet in control panel, is this correct? I ask this as the strange MS Office behaviour (spell checking being disabled etc ) seem to have resolved them selves
