    Windows 7, mandatory profiles and Outlook 2013

    Hi all,

    Having lots of difficultly making Outlook 2013 run in a newly acquired school with mandatory profiles and Windows 7. The Exchange server is hosted internally. Regardless of the method by which Outlook is configured and/or called (be it manually or via a PRF file), users get the message "Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened. The attempt to log on to Microsoft Exchange has failed." If I log in using an account which is not applying the GPO settings that make a mandatory profile possible, all is OK.

    Anyone have any hints and tips or is this as I think, a total pain in the backside and to be avoided?

    Thanks

    Outlook 2013 should use autodiscover, let it discover and configure profile, don't set anything in your GPO or mandortary profile for Outlook.
