I have another problem which i cannot solve so need lots of help. Microsoft offfice was installed on the pc by another technician and he copied his profile to default user profile. Now I have installed microsoft outlook 2003 as it was not installed. If i open it, its working fine but with other member of staff i get following error message.
The path specified for the file c:\Documents and settings \techn1\local settings \application data\Microsoft\outlook\outlook.pst is not valid.

I cannot login as other tech 'techn1' as he has left and his account has been deleted.  I tried to  create .pst file for every user but he has been loosing it everynow and outlook ask him to open the .pst file which he is not happy about. I even made him local administrator and still could not solve the problem. Can anyone help me to sort out this problem.

 thank you

    Not sure exactly what you are asking, but try deleting the default mail profile and recreating it;
    locate the .pst file in windows explorer and in the permissions tab give the user full control of it (you may also have to move it to the root or a folder that the user can access.
    Hope this helps
