Up to Windows 2003 Server to have to create an own "PSF User" on Terminalserver. This user must get an own installed Outlook. Please open this Outlook to create a PST file and an Outlook Profile. Install Public ShareFolder Server for this PSF user and let the service run "as PSF user" (FAQ No.1). Now, the PSF user can not open Outlook anymore, if the PSF service is running.

You can share the PST file of this user with Public ShareFolder on Terminalserver, only the PSF user is not allowed to open his Outlook. If you like to share also incomming Emails, the Outlook of the administrator can move incomming emails with an Outlook rule.
