I have a problem which occurs when users log on/off their profile. Each user has an outlook.pst files in their profile. With some users, the outlook.pst file is not being saved correctly on the server, and the result is that a number of files, called prfxxx.tmp are saved on the server in the same folder as the outlook.pst file. The result is that log on/off takes a long time - 5-10 minutes in some cases, but outlook does not have any problem once it has loaded.
Each tmp file is the same size, or very similar in size to the outlook.pst file. This is mostly occuring when users have a large .pst file (>1Gb), but is not exclusive to large .pst files, and it does not happen to some users at all.
Any ideas why?
We are using Windows Server 2003, and Windows XP on the desktop machines. Outlook is 2003 Pro.
