Roaming Profiles & Outlook

We have setup roaming profiles on an sbs2011. Each time a user logs on to a new PC and launching Outlook, the wizard pops up to configure the account. This regards Outlook 2013/2016

Are the settings not saved in the roaming profile?

Edit: this seems to be only the issue when the users logs on to a Windows 10 machine. Between Windows 7 everything works great.

In roaming profile Data file stored at Local rive and only Account is sync. Its not  depends on Win 7 or 10.

If your outlook account is not syncing between different computer means outlook account  is open at any other PC.  If its not the case then follow the below link and see authors fix.

Dear user
Yuu can just configure the roaming profile by using active directory users and computer and configure this for the nessecary users. Folder redirection via sbs console only redirects my documents, etc but not the profile folders.
Note: The local profile folder is never roamed to the server so if files are over there and needed anywhere then you have to move the files from there to another location.

You can also refer the technet forum and Expert Exchange solved query for more information.

One PC had office 2013 and the other had 2016, that was causing the wizard for the configuration of the Outlook profile.
