same user - different outlook

Dear All,

Quick question for a training company.

They train Office 2007, 2010 and 2013.

They are building multiple boots on their training room as opposed to Remote App or VDI etc.....

So its a traditional PC setup.

Question is, although the machines will boot up clean for each version of the MSOffice software etc... Can they use the same training user accounts across all the different boot partitions due to MS OUTLOOK still using the same mailbox on the Exchange 2010 server.

I know it can literally be done, but wondered if there will be OUTLOOK issues as they switch between versions and although separate OST's ... same mailbox on the EXCH Server.

Any advice ASAP would be great.

Many thanks in advance

There should be no problems as long as you are using boot partitions.

Nope. Would just be the same if that user was accessing multiple different machines that each ran a different version of Outlook.

If I hosted the OST file in a U:\ Drive.. would this cause any issues, or should the separate OST on each MS Office version be an advantage?

It's not recommended using a network drive for OST or PST files. It will be much faster if it's stored on the local drive. I would have it stored on a second drive that is accessible to all the various profiles.
