Want to use Microsoft Outlook 2000 to access my Internet Mail.

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.

It's not helpful to EDIT your original post. Instead, reply to the same post by hitting Post Reply at the bottom or using the quick reply box. That way, putasolution (who's quite good, I might add!) receives an email notification that he's resolved your problem. AND, your questions is bumped back up to the top of the list where others might see it and have a look.

While I'm here, I'm going to move this to "Business Applications" since Outlook is part of Office and, hence, a "business app" more so than, say...Outlook Express. I will delete your other post since you can just continue to use this one.
Now, to deal with your issue.
From one of the other PCs, in Outlook, choose File-Open-personal files folder (PST) and browse to the PST file on the *main* machine.

Problem: You cannot have Outlook open on more than one PC at a time. PST files are NOT share-able like that.
