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.

Information on how to configure Outlook 2000 can be found at:

Since you already have most of the necessary information, this shouldn't be too difficult.

Sharing a PST file, unless you have an Exchange server, it no simple task. There are some third party programs like those linked to in a previous post, but I've never found any that were all that simple or inexpensive. They can access it but not at the same time.
You would have to ask MS why they made it difficult to share a PST file without having an Exchange server. Maybe that's the key.

On the problem computer, are you certain you configured Outlook to use the exact location of the PST file. It doesn't do this by default.
I guess you could set up different profiles that would have the same e-mail address but simply point to different PST files. Then just configure Outlook to prompt for a profile when you start it. Not sure if that would answer all your needs but it might be a start.
