We've setup folder redirection for the Appdata. Everything seems to be fine at first, but when a user logs on to a PC that she/he has not logged onto, and starts outlook, the wizard each time shows up to configure a profile.

Is this normal?

Hi,
outlook and pst files are not supported with folder redirection.
You need to change path and exclude it from folder redirection.
Here are the steps:

you may want to try some scripting:

but it can be dangerous if something goes wrong

Yeah, I hear a lot of stories that it is not a good idea to keep OST files on a network share and I support that remark.

I really only need the configuration of the settings and avoiding of running the setup wizard on each new PC.
