OE5 has this bad hbit of puttig it's profile in the root docs folder....several people use the computer but they all use the same e-mail...but because of permissions they can't share the profile...now, since every account has its own docs folder..each time you start up OE5 in a account it tries to create a new profile......some how i need the program to put and read the profile in a place where everyone can have permissions to access the profile......if i'm talking to fast just e-mail me and i'll try to explain


GOD put me on this earth to accomplish a certain number of things......

right now, I''m so far behind. I''ll never die.

OE5 puts it's profile folder in the documents-folder by DEFAULT.
However, it IS possible to put your profile folder at another location as mentioned in the README-file;

"NOTE: You can store your Microsoft User Data folder in any
location, including a server. However, you should place an alias
to that folder in either the system Documents folder or the
Outlook Express 5 folder."
