We have 10 users using Mozilla 1.5 with windows XP.  Their mozilla 
profiles are stored on a network drive, without problems.  When you 
create the profile you can choose its location.  This avoids their 
profile (and hence messages) being copied back and forth with their 
roaming profile.  Outlook Express cannot do this.
