[Samba] Outlook .pst files on Samba PDC

I agree - keeping any valuable data in a profile is asking for trouble -
especially as profiles get overwritten so you have no chance of recovering a
lost one.

PST files also grow exponetially so you will soon be looking at huge
login/logoff times as huge PST files are copied up and down to the server.

Why not position the PSTs in the user's home drive?  We have done this
before and it works OK.  We also have the Desktop folder in their home drive
as well so people can save stuff there and not worry about it being lost
through over write next time the client/server disagree about the profile

The only thing you want in the profile are those program settings which can
be recreated - keep any real data well away.

I think there's only one solution in the end: store your users mails on
an imapserver.

As profiles grow, they sometimes get corrupted, also, if you just keep
pstfiles on the server (possible w/outlook) you end up getting trouble
anyway (in my experience).

you got some fine solutins :P

Also, while you're at it; consider moving to mandatory profiles. They save
you a _lot_ of work.

Just my .02 cent.
