Using outlook on different machines

I am having problems allowing users to access their email from different machines using outlook.  Here is the scenario – please can someone give me some pointers where I am going wrong.

We are NOT running exchange at the moment.  Our mail server is MDaemon provided by Zen Software.

I have created a number of user accounts in a new OU via active directory.  In the group policy, I have redirected My Docs, Application Data etc so that they are mapped to a share on the server.  Offline files have been disabled.

I then set up a users account on one machine and was able to send and receive emails.  Changes were saved to the mapped Application Data Folder.  

I then presumed that when a user logged onto another machine, outlook would look in the application data folder, see that an email account had been set up and display the users emails etc accordingly.

However, this has not happened.  When the user loads outlook on the 2nd machine, they are simply presented with the Outlook set up wizard.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
