Hi David,
Good tip on a way to keep all files in one place, with the multi user mode.

| This is what I have Bob on the subject:
| For XP use this link
| http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;293118
| 
| 
| Here's a Microsoft Link Entitled "Move Outlook to a new computer": 
| 
| http://officeupdate.microsoft.com/2000/articles/olnewcpt1.htm 
| 
| 
| It gives specific filenames and default locations for the files, and breaks
| it down as to whether Outlook is setup in Internet Only Mode, or Corporate
| or Workgroup Mode. 
| 
| BTW, this scattering about of files by Windows 98 includes Favorites, Office
| Templates, Internet Cookies (Subscription Info), and God only knows what
| else.  Since Win98 came out I've been coping with this on customer's
| computers by routinely setting up Windows 98 in multi User mode, even if
| there is absolutely going to be only one user on the machine.  The result of
| this is that all these scattered about files are gathered up by Windows and
| placed in the C:\Windows\Profiles\ folder in a subfolder with the name of
| the user. 
| 
| For Example, on each of my personal computers, all my Outlook information,
| Favorites, Office Templates, and My Documents are all together in
| C:\Windows\Profiles\Dave\  And windows automatically did that for me, and
| prefers to keep it that way.  When I change computers, I just set up Dave as
| a user and copy that Dave folder to the new computer to the same folder.
