creating user ftp accounts under IIS

I couldn’t work out how to set up a unix style user FTP account under IIS, the type where the user is automatically forwarded into an intial users directory when they log in via FTP.

I had a login to IIS manager and an FTP user account which redirected to my user folder as described above, but couldn’t see how the account was set up or managed.

A bit of research showed that as long as the user exists and a folder exists in the domain root of the same name, then an FTP account with redirection to the users home directory will automagically occur..
