youre not right ,the pst file can be hosted where ever you want, theres
no need to have it in the profile
you can control the behavior of outlook and its default pst file ( means
default place for the default pst file for a new user )
by a group policy or simple with outlook itself by hand.
A good place for a pst is the a folder on the users home on the samba
But notice dont use vfs antivirus with pst files cause it will be very
slow, after all opening a 2G pst over the network will get slow in any case.
Notice that pst primer outlook 2003 will get corrupt if the get bigger
then 1.5 GB.
After all switch to imap and thunderbird is a good idea in any
case, but mostly fails with outlook junkies
