With outlook working you need to redirect your users pst and you need to set
up a prf-file for each user.

But you are running exchange. Why do you need another imap and smtp?

Hi Guys,

I've had a check again, looks like roaming profile is already running (sorry
about being misleading),  strange though
no local profile is created (this can be found out when i log in as local
admin and go to the User Profile tab in computer
properties),  and outlook still complains about the data file cannot be
accessed and not sending email  (we have two
email accounts in outlook,  the exchange one is fine, only imap/smtp account
is not sending. )  on Windows XP before
the upgrade everything was fine,  just wondering if there's anyone managed
to get outlook working with windows7 roaming profile.

.profile.V2 looks fine on the server.  it was auto-generated by windows7.

Thanks again.
