    Sererv 2008 R2 and Re-Directs

    Hi everyone,

    I am having a small issue with people logging onto PC's in our network, the issue is when someone sets there exchange mail account up on one PC is all great fine and dandy BUT if they go to a different machine in the building on the same domain they have to setup there exchange accounts again in outlook, is there a way to set this up so if joe bloggs logs onto his account on any pc his Outlook will be setup & ready to go ?

    And would it be easier setting this up on redirected AppData folders or local profiles ??


    Thanks

    You want roaming profiles for that, stuff is stored in appdata and the registry.

    You can use this. - RichProfile - Create or Migrate Exchange Outlook (MAPI) Profiles Automatically

    If you use it with a batch file and set it as a login screen, it will automatically configure outlook when the users logs on.

    You want to use an outlook prf file: Customize Outlook profiles by using an Outlook Profile (PRF) file

    Then just update any outlook shortcuts with this appended to the end of the target: /importprf \\networklocationofprffile\outlook.prf (nice and easy solution if you have redirected start menus and/or desktop icons)

    At least that's the way i do it with mandatory profiles. Automatically logs any logged in user into their own exchange account when they open outlook, and can set various other settings in conjunction with group policy.
