I would check to see if there is a group policy in place possibly
restricting something, it may also  be a setting when outlook is installed
if the ORK is used and a custom deployment is setup, and a default outlook
profile is assigned. Hope this helps - Marc

The problem is that a few, not all, users have PST files on their home
folders, which is OK as it is a 100Mb connection, but what happens is, when
the user logs off and then onto a different machine, the mapping to the PST
files are lost, all other settings come across, just not this.
