Anyone here using this?
I'm giving it a try with the ISP's hosted Exchange and I'm wondering where it stores the email, it's set in cache mode. I can see a folder \Profiles\USERNAME\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook that contains settings but nothing big enough to be my mail and I can't see a .pst file. I was under the impression it downloaded mail does it actually work with the online copy like IMAP?
Using Outlook 2003 SP3 with Exchange 2007.
By default, Outlook mail stores are in the local AppData directory, which is separate from the main AppData directory.
On XP: C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data

Yes found it it seems to be called outlook.ost with the conector rather than outlook.pst.
Hmm I wonder if there's a way to move this to their user folder. Anyone know?
The answer appears to be no but it just rebuilds the local file each time, as our users only have a 50 Mb mailbox limit that's not a massive issue. I might look into the non cached option.

I've managed to get it working nicely without caching and this works with redirected appdata so far. This should also work with mandatory profiles. I'll post back with how it goes.
Well it seems to be working well so far. The initial problem is that you have to create the Outlook profile and it demands a mailbox name, it won't let you finish the wizard untill you enter one. This means that it pops up with this mailbox name at logon and won't let you change it, this is ok as long as you don't use mandatory profiles.
To get around this issue I created the profile with all Exchange server settings and a mailbox name I then closed Outlook and deleted the mailbox key, now when a user with a mandatory profile logs on it ascs for username (same as the mailbox name here) and password. Set it up in non cacheing mode so it doesn't download anything and it then seems to work fine.
Code:[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Exchange] "LogonDomain"="leave this it should be the same for all users" "UserName"="delete this value"
