We are thinking of upgrading to Office 2007 at the end of the year and have put it on a few test machines so that staff can use it for a bit. When the staff have pulled all their exchange settings on to the Office 2007 system it works great. When they then go back to their Office 2003 computer they loose all their settings, Rules, GAL and PST folder.
I am not sure how to get these settings back for the user.
Any help would be much appreciated.

we use XP Sp2 and Exchange 5.5

You would be hard pressed to find support in the combination of exchange 5.5 and outlook 2007. They were never intended to work togeter

I found that office 2007 migrates all user profile settings to the new computer and when you go back it wont migrate then the other way. I had to put the profile back on the user account.
