Outlook Express on a network

  Faser 17:46 22 Jun 2004

I have networked my PC and laptop and can share folders and printer. However I’m not sure of the best way to organise my emails.

I am using the PC for mail at the moment, if I set up O.E on the laptop as well will it cause problems. Also I will need keep track of my mail, preferably sharing it on my network.

Any suggestions please?

It depends what you want to do, Outlook Express is not designed as a network product and if you try to create a common message store you are asking for problems.

Outlook was designed to be used on a network and works far better.

You could take the POP out of the laptops server so that both will send but only the desktop will receive.

Thanks spikeychris, I have Outlook as well and will change to it when I have time.

I like your idea of stopping the laptop receiving mail and will do that for now. I can view emails using the mail providers web site when away from home.
