Outlook Web Access

Hi all.

I want to use Microsoft Outlook 2003 as my primary email account. But I also need to access this on any computer. I understand this is call "Microsoft Web Access," I use Windows XP Pro and IIS "Internet Information Systems" is installed on my PC. How do I login into Outlook on any PC and use it as any other email web based client?

Thanks.... Neil.

As far as I'm aware (not knowing a lot about Outlook) you need to have a Microsoft Exchange account to do that. Of course I could be completely wrong.

I know that MAJ but where do I get that from?

I'm currently downloading Microsoft Exchange from click here almost 700mb, but does it need to be present on the PC that I try to access my Outlook account from?

Microsoft Exchange is a complicated SOB, usually for businesses and learning institutions, way beyond me, I'm afraid, neil_raj. But have a look at this, it might help. click here and this click here

Yea I know that MAJ, I will have a look at the program when it completes the download, all I need is access to Outlook from any web based PC, thanks MAJ.... Neil.

If you used something like the free version of VNC click here you could remotely connect to your PC and get access to Outlook that way. I have used it a few times in the past to repair remote PCs and it works well. It obviously works better if both connections are broadband connections. I think it was on one of PCA coverdisks recently.
