Multiple Outlook users on Terminal Services - how to assign individual .pst's on logon?

Hi. First post here.

I'm setting up remote access for several users via UDP on Terminal Services. XP Pro workstations, Windows 2003 Server. All is well with the exception of Outlook. I'd like the users to only see their personal folders and become the default Outlook user automatically when they logon. I've done a good job of messing this up I think. I'm under the impression that multiple users can share the Outlook that is installed on the server. Am I mistaken? I've got it set so their .pst's are password protected, but they have to manually change the default user, which doesn't asccomplish what I want to do. I've got to make it a simple as possible for all users. And I want to have it done today! Any help will ve very gratefully appreciated! Thanks.

Hi Ron

Please view the following

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Applications/MS_Office/Outlook/Q_22031022.html

Basically it's the same thing, use the logon script with outlook.exe /importprf \\Server\Share\Outlook.PRF this will setup the user as soon as they logon, with their own credentials etc..  You may also want to look at adding the Outlk11.ADM file also part of the Office 2003 Resource Kit.  Here you can define your settings to cover all users, this can include where PST files are created / saved, fine tuning other parts of Outlook Settings.

Hope that helps

Cheers
