I have two issues.

1. How do I access my Internet Mail using Microsoft Outllook which I can do using Outlook Express and also.

2. How do I share my pst file (personal) to have other people in the same workgroup access the personal folders (pst file) in their computers.

Please how do I do that? Can anyone help me out on this?




By using the helpful notes by "putasolution", I have managed to access my internet e-mail in outlook NOW.

So my main problem now is to share the pst file in a folder so the other computers on the same workgroup can access that folder. I am having a bit of a difficulty because there is a limitation that pst files can not be accessed simulteaneously at any one time. So How can all computers access the pst file simulteaneously at any given time.

Is there are way around this?


Thanks Putasolution for your help. Very Helpful.

I have managed to receive mail using my machine that connects and access the internet.

After following what I gathered from Bob, I tried to access the shared folder that contain the pst file in the XP machine using both Win 98 machines (one at a time), I can't seem to see the content of the inbox (in this case the pst file in the XP machine).

Why is this so?

To access this pst file (in XP machine) I have closed down Outlook on the XP machine. But still can't see the content.

Thanks in advance.

The reason why I was able to see the content of the pst file in the XP machine is simply because I did share the file but did not allow everyone on the network to have full control over that pst file.

Talk about carelessness.

Anyway, I have managed to see the content of the mail box in the XP machine on the Win 98 machine and can now send and receive mail via the XP machine.

But as you say, I have to except the limitation that pst files are not gona be simulatenaously access. It has to be accessed one at a time.

However, What do you think about the idea of having more that one pst file in the XP machine so that the machines running Win 98 can access this pst files individually? Haven't tried it but I am thinking about trying out.

Give me some hints on this.
