    Hello,

    When a roaming profile is set up for a domain user, does the applications
    and the settings for those applications get set up in the profile? For
    instance, if someone was using Outlook or Outlook Express, would the
    application and the mail settings be stored in the profile? I know the
    application (Outlook or Outlook Express) has to be available on the
    workstation but would the user settings (mail settings) follow the user
    around?

  2. Yes, they would.

  3. They should. One concern, though about roaming profiles is the size of
    the profiles. The larger they get, the longer it takes to boot and the
    likelihood of profile corruption increases. You can exclude directories
    via Group Policy.
