Is there a way to have Outlook Express store its data files on a network drive. I want to store them in the user directory on the server that is maped to the Z drive.

I have a program I want to install on some of our computers(deep Freeze) that restores the computer back to the state it was in when it the program was installed when the computer is rebooted. Also this will allow my to backup the email data as I done backup the workstations.

Thanks

To change the store folder, go to Tools, Options, maintenence, store folder, change.

That will change where OE keeps e-mails.

I dont know how you can do the same for account info

Hi ecpcpw

Outlook Express is not really designed for use over a network, a better alternative, Microsoft Outlook is designed for network use.

Take a look at this site for more information on Outlook Express and the problems associated with networked Store Folders.

This site has extensive information on Microsoft Outlook
