Hosted emails

Hi,
I am using Outlook anywhere with hosted emails.

I change a setting within outlook and it changes the setting back to the wrong setting after closing and re-opening outlook.

I go into the exchange proxy settings, and change the ' use SSL only' field. I have typed in "msstd:*.######.com" and it keeps changing back to "msstd:webmail.######.com"

This is only happening to Windows XP SP3 machines. Win7 machines work fine.

this has happened to  quite a few machines, they aren't joined to a domain or have GPO enabled.

I have run all the updates and changed some registry settings. the machine is still changing the settings back.

If i create a new windows account and setup the email account on that it works fine. The users  don't want to create new accoutns for about 10 different people.

If you need more info then ask. Any ideas on what it could be could be useful.

I have tried creating a new local app data outlook folder within C:\docs & settings\(user)\local settings\app data\Microsoft\outlook but that didn't work either.


Cheers

Have you checked your Autodiscover?

Also all the same versions of outlook?

I will try that shortly when I can next get onto the machines.

Does anyone know where I can find the files which store the security settings for Microsoft Outlook 2007?

I was told it was the .ost file, or is it the .nk2 file?

Cheers
