    mandatory profiles and microsoft outlook how do you keep users settings

    Current system is

    Mandatory profile for users and they currently use a edited prf loaded from a shared location

    obviously the prf is read only so they cant change it.

    I want my users to be able to make changes to how outlook looks like view and colours etc

    how can i acheive this.

    are setting like the position of views icons etc stored in the prf file or somewhere else

    as i could point the edited prf to the users home directory and alow changes but its the other information i dont know where it is stored.


    any ideas?

    You could use redirected App Data.

    I am pretty sure its hard coded into Outlook. I dont think there is anything in the registry or anything.

    do you think this would work

    first of all setup outlook on a machine how i think best for the users copy this appdata into say the users home folder
    possibly when they log on copy the appdata to c:\users\username\blah blahh


    and then a log off script that copys the data from the c: drive back to the home area this should keep any changes they have made to the way outlook looks

    what do you think

    i am a bit reluctant to redirect app data currently as things are working quite well with the windows 7 deployment
