outlook 2007 roaming profiles loose account settings when logging on different computers

Ugggg...

So I have roaming profiles with folder redirection setup on a server 2008 R2.

I am setting up an image to roll out to 20 computers.

When I loging with a roaming profile, to one of these new computers and setup outlook for the user that I am logged in as it would be nice for outlook to "stay" configured when this roaming profile user logs into another computer.  

Currently it does not; microsoft asks for account setup when the user logs on to a new computer and starts outlook.

I've played with PRF files and that sort of works but there seems to be now way to force outlook to use a certain .pst file, so it creates another one.

Should the oultlook account information persist across computers and something is not working right?

The desktop roams, the docuements roam... what am I missing?

when I look at the desktop location it shows the network UNC for the roaming profile...

I have the roaming profile setup in GPO, not in the account properties under AD...

NOTE: Yes, I have the pst files on a network share. I know i am not supposed to but...

Answered my own questions, all I was doing in GPO was folder redirection... Had to do the profile path in AD... Took care of it
