When logging into XP on a SBS 2003 domain - outlook starts up automatically - I guess this is in the policy somewhere. How does this happen and how do I stop it on individual pc's ? Part of MCSE I guess.

I wouls assume that either your group policy is setting the profile at startup which would open Outlook or possible a script is copying the shortcut to the startup folder which launces outlook at startup.

To remove this you would need to find out how it is hapening.

Hope this helps.

On the PC, click Start>Run and type in msconfig

On the startup tab look for outlook.exe and untick it.
