OK here is one for you that I can't find an obvious document stating, or any obvious location for how it 'knows'.
Scnenario -- R7 site. Started doing R8.5.3 for users on new machines but hadn't upgraded their mail templates.... I have put them a desktop policy in place to set all the things they did manually each time and to upgrade the template to R8.5 one, update ODS of local db's etc.
This all works fine when user was still using R7 and this is the first time they have used R8.5, but for a user that already had 8.5 the policy applies except for the mail upgrade prompt.
So where does it get the idea from that the user has already had 8.5 and so doesn't need the mail template upgrade?
The mail file is still R7 format and in R7 template showing
Happens with roaming / non roaming user, whether NAB, bookmarks etc. brought over to new machine or not.
Happens with fresh install on new PC of 8.5 for that user, and existing 8.5 installation applies policy completely apart from requesting the template update.
So not stored on the PC anywhere / INI file etc.
I don't think stored in the person document (e.g. checks last client versions in there) since blanking those fields out doesn't effect it.
So does anyone know of a profile document or other flag in the mail file maybe that shows that it has been used on 8.5 and won't prompt for upgrade?
Or is there is a field I have missed in the person document?
