Hi David, Good tip on a way to keep all files in one place, with the multi user mode. Bob Noble www.sonic.net/bnoble ----- Original Message ----- From: "Emery, David" <demery@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> | 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.
