Outlook Emails and Roaming Profiles

I have a server that I want to put in to one of our offices.  I currently have it setup on a small test network and have been playing with login scripts and roaming profiles.  The server is running "Windows Server 2000" and there are 2 machines running "Windows XP Pro" on this test network.

I can get roaming profiles to work so when a user logs in to each of the machines they see their own data (Desktop and My Documents) plus a shared drive but i cant seem to work out how they can see their own emails in outlook when i use the same username to login to another machine.

Do you have an exchange server?

We have a server running windows server 2003.  i know you can have exchange running on that but we dont use this as our mail server.  An external company supplies us with pop3 email accounts.
Hi howardsit,

maybe look at folder redirection rather than roaming profiles, its a lot less load on your network....
