I have Outlook 2003 configured on my desktop, in a domin enviroment with Exchange 2007and have 3 PST files connected to my outlook, the PST files are stored on a Network Share (I know this is not supported)
When I am in the office and open Outlook the PST's connect with no error.
When I am out of the office and Open Outlook the PST's try to connect but cannot (which is correct no VPN) It takes a while to open Outlook and I have to select canceil 3 times when it says it can not find each PST.

It there a switch that anybody knows of for outlook to stop outlook trying to mount PST files. ?

if you have XP, go to control panel, switch to classic view,

double click MAIL

Show Profiles

Prompt for a Profile to be used


then every time you open mail it will ask you which account/pst you want to use

I understand what you mean but that means I need to have to outlook profiles for my Work account on the PC, 2 X OST etc etc.

Is there no other way.
