E-Mails and Network

I have set up a wireless network with file and printer sharing and would like to ask this question.
Is it possible to access the In Box on the main computer from my laptop without copying and pasting etc. Thanks in advance Carper

Unfortunately the answer is no if you are using OE or Outlook unless you are using Exchange Server, which in a home environment is far to great an expense.

Essentially: You cannot share the real inbox folder but you can set up a personal folder (or Net Folder) called 'inbox' which is shared by both PC's.
One each PC, set up Outlook to pop mail from your e-mail server into the inbox as normal and create a rule to move the e-mail directly to the shared personal folder 'inbox'.
I use this system at home quite happily.

This may explain thing a little better that I have.
