as a clue you should take a look at ntuser.ini in the profile location of an
user :

ExclusionList=Local Settings;Temporary Internet Files;Historique;Temp;Local
Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook;

This is the list of folders of the profile that do not synchronize...
I think this can help ;)
Please send me your feedback :)
