We have a small LAN, W2k Server, XP Pro clients. All users use Outlook for their POP3 e-mail accounts. The pst file is kept in the C:Documents and SettingsusernameApplication DataMicrosoftOutlook folder.
Occasionally, when a user logs off the PST file doesn't go back to the server, instead remaining on the machine (s)he logged on to. This is fine if they continue to use the same machine, but if they move onto another machine that they haven't used before, their profile is loaded from the server. Then when they go back to their normal PC, the PST file is somehow overwritten and they lose any e-mails that were stored locally.
I have tried to use UPHClean before to try and resolve this but it seemed to cause more problems than it fixed. I am thinking about moving everyone's PST file into their own user folder on the server so it doesn't actually move from server to PC. WOuld this cause any problems I don't know about or is there a better way to resolve this?
