[Samba] problem with logon and outlook

Hi Tyler,

It should be, maybe do a search for all *.pst files on your machine to see
if you can find a newer one.  Also if you are using roaming profiles check
in your profile folder on the server.  After you delete a profile it looses
its settings.  You are creating the profile again for the first time so all
the settings for that profile need to be recreated.

I am using Win XP so the old .pst should be under Documents and Settings 
Application Data Microsoft and Outlook, correct? I tried to load the old 
.pst file and the only thing it gave me was an inbox with a couple of pieces

of mail from july. Is there somewhere else that should have the newer data. 
Also, shouldn't I be able to login to the XP machine somehow with the old 
username or admin account and pull off the info?
