Hi there,

as I recall you are using OL2010 in an enterprise environment? In many
cases home directories etc. are residing then on network shares. And
that’s where .pst files and .ost files most probably are being written,
too. When profiles are being configured writing incoming mails to .pst
files (so you have a "local" copy), you will run in a situation, MS does
not support/recommend, as this slows down (yes, confirmed) the client
and may have negative side effects to others on that share:
