    No store information

    I created a roaming profile at my work onto a server. No when I am at home and not connected, when I launch Outlook 2000 it says "Unable to locate my default email folders. The information store could not be opened."

    I had a local profile before and never had a problem. Now with this roaming profile I cannot read my email while I am not connected to my domain.

    I cannot call in either because I do not have permissions to access through our firewall by way of vpn.

    if you can't call in, how did you get your mail from home before?

    if using a laptop, set up the acct for offline use when at work and sync.

    I log of my computer at work and when I am back home I log back on without it being connected to anything. I could read my mail and everything but now I can because of this roaming profile <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    sounds like you were using an offline store (*.ost) before then.

    set up a new profile locally and use it. use the roaming profile when actually roaming. make sure you use an ost and not a pst on the laptop.

    I feel like a idiot. Your correct. I forgot to resetup a offline store (.ost). What happened was I had setup a roaming profile on my server, then I did a dumb thing and went to another computer and logged on. Of course, this computer did not have Outlook on it. So when I logged back onto my laptop with Outlook, my roaming profile that was created on the server had no link you might say, to Outlook. So when I launched Outlook I had to reset it back up to my Exchange server, account stuff and all and I know remember, thanks to you, I forgot to resetup my offline settings, hance, no .ost file was created. Thanks for jogging my memory.
