Thanks DieSse, howvere, when browising to the file it (unsurprisingly) fails to open with the messaage taht it is allraedy in use - by the main pc. looks like this will be a problem with the direct approach. So how about synchronising the .pst file on two pc's? Does DieSse or anyone have any sugestions on that?
Is it possible to have two pc's checking the same e-mail accounts and talk to each other to keep themselves updated?
