we use godaddy.com for out email access.  We add the account to outlook 2003.  With our floating profiles one of my end users is able to login to account with any computer, but isn't able to access her outlook.  What settings are off in her profile on the server?  How do I go in and change it?

by the account if you just mean mails and use POP accounts, then you can configure your POP settings to leave a copy of the mail on the sever, its in the advanced settings.

the trouble you are having is when you logon to computer a outlook saves the pst file on computer A and when the user then logs on to computer B it cant get that pst file from computer A

you should change the location of the folder where email files are stored to somewhere central, for example of you change it to \\server\Emails\Users\outlook.pst and map that location to say drive z or whatever drive letter you want and make a logon script to map that drive when the user logs in. that way as far as outlook is concerned the emails will be saved on drive z: and if there is a drive z: mapped on logon to the email location then the user should always find his/her emails
