Ok, have recently set a gpo to force users to wait to download their profile from the server at logon.

Now users seem to always get the profile from the server, but occasionally the profile is created and we end up with folders in documents and settings locally


the problem is that the outlook reference (i'm assuming in the registry) always references the username folder, so when a new one is created it comes up saying it cant access the ost in the username folder, when really it should be accessing the ost in teh latest folder

any ideas from anyone?
