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...
