    Outlprnt files (Outlook98)

    We run a routed NT4 network using Outlook98 on NT Workstation PC's. We have numerous instances of PC's generating hundreds of Outlprnt files and are at a loss to explain why. Microsoft has been less that helpful in finding the root cause. Has anyone out there come accross this issue?

    they are generated for the printers outlook may use - how many printers are networked and connected when a user logs on?

    Re: Outlprnt files (Outlook98)

    What we have found is that under normal circumstances a PC will only have one Oulprtnt file regardless of the number of networked printers. Unfortunately, we cannot find any common thread between the PC's that generate the extra Outlprnt files and those that do not. Our hardware/software is uniform in the field PC's. We have not been able to duplicate the issue in a test environment. While each file itself is not very large, we recently discovered over 2 GIG worth of extra Outlprnt files on one of our file servers.

    No roaming profiles used in our environment. Each employee has a dedicated PC.
