Do not Save Network Settings

Posted on 2004-11-08

Hi! we use a Netware file server.  When a new user is created and he logs on to a Windows 98 machine, the PC says "You have not logged on this computer before.  Do you wish this machine to remember your settings?"  If the user says yes, his Application Data, HIstory and Cookies are all copied onto his SYS:MAIL\<usermail_directory>.  These are reloaded each time he logs in and saved each time he logs off.  Is there a way to reverse this?  That is, If it was already set for a user to save his network settings, could it still be undone?  The main prolem really is that I don't want too many files in the SYS:MAIL folder
 as it has a very small allocation.
