Roaming outlook 2007 account settings with exchange 2007


M

Matthew Bilsky

I have an exchange 2007 server setup, and all of my clients are using
outlook 2007. Some of them also use isp mail accounts to send and receive
messages. they can configure them on their local machine, but as soon as
they switch machines, they have to setup their local accounts again, even
though i have it set for the exchange account to be added automatically. I
have application data being redirected through group policy for all users.

How can i get the isp accounts to transfer too?

Thanks,

Matt

This is usually a bad idea....what's the reason for that?

You could set up roaming profiles in Windows, or look into Outlook profile
tools and do something in the login script.

this is for my home / home office, so not enterprise level stuff. I am
currently using roaming profiles, but the isp account settings don't
transfer.

docs, and desktop.

OK - then you can either do roaming profiles or find a profile generation /
prf file utility. Search slipstick.com.

I still suggest you ditch the Internet mail accounts. Check out POPBeamer if
you have ISP-managed mailboxes you absolutely must check.

No, you can't pick/choose the sender in Outlook when you connect to
Exchange. You can use the From field to send mail as (or on behalf of)
another mail-enabled object in AD to which you have been granted sufficient
rights, but it's not the same as the Accounts button.
