Having to reset Outlook to sync with exchange server

I have Server 2003 with exchange server, lately I am having problems with some users losing their configuration (like profile config), becasue everytime they log into the domain I have to configure Outlook again for them, sometimes I have multiple users accessing the same computer and all of users are having the same problem. Any ideas why this might be happening?

I would enable profiles in outlook that prompts the user for user name and password.

Here is a link From MIcrosoft.

is it because of roaming profiles or users using temp profiles (or even multiple logons and the last log off) overwriting any of your changes?

r u loosing the entire AD profile or just outlook profile. If you are loosing all your settings of your profile then need to check at the AD Level

To narrow down you create a file in the desktop and Log off. Login back and check if the file exist in the desktop. If it does then there is no issue with your AD profile.

I don't have that problem with my user, I just created it a few days ago, the problem seems to hapen when more than one user log into the same computer. TKS

perhaps office was installed in single user mode (ie; you either turned the server into a terminal server after the fact or didnt use the control panel add/remove to install the software.
