nk2 Outlook files

Hi,

I have roaming profiles and have a mixture of windows XP and Windows 7 on my network. Most PC's are running Outlook 2007

When a user roams to another desk, they get all their profile etc but the autocomplete for their Outlook history list never comes across??

I am using Group policy on a windows 2003 domain to redirect desktop and My documents etc. I recently added a policy for AppData to roam which works ok, but still i cant get their Outlook history or Email signatures in Outlook to raom to another PC.

What am i doing wrong?

The path for NK2 on XP and Windows 7 are different,

For Outlook 2003/2007 with Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows Server 2003:
The location of the nk2 file is C:\Documents and Settings\[User Profile]\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
The name of the NK2 file is identical to the Outlook profile name, with .nk2 extension.

For Outlook 2003/2007 with Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows server 2008:
The location of the nk2 file is C:\Users\[User Profile]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook
The name of the NK2 file is identical to the Outlook profile name, with .nk2 extension.

I am sure sure how will they work on two different OS.

I have just realised that when anybody roams to a different desk, when they log into Outlook, it automatically creates Outlook Default Profile and obviously creates a NK2 file called that.
