    Re: Outlook (MS Office 2000 Pro/SP-3)

    I don't suppose he wants to spend several thousand dollars on Exchange Server? Microsoft has trimmed back the "free" mail sharing facilities from earlier versions of Outlook, but 2000 still might have included a feature called NetFolders. I never used them, and have read only sketchy information about them, but I suggest trying some searches as a way to start.

    Assuming there is a way to share the main "work" mail folder, it is easy to drop the "personal" mail into the same folder. It's a bit trickier to make sure it ends up in a different place, but using Outlook's Rules Wizard (which in the "Internet Mail Only" mode can inspect the account through which the mail was received) it is possible.

    P.S. You can edit your message to remove personal information if those are real addresses. Just use the <IMG SRC=http://www.wopr.com/w3timages/edit.gif> icon that appears above your post. Wouldn't want them to fall into the wrong hands...

    Small office users are not served by Outlook. See Slipstick for a variety of solutions. One Outlook Lounger was not able to get Outlook Plus working.

    Exchange at that sort of price? No the business ain't that well off! It costs the equivalent of about $2000 here in UK. Following your suggestion my enquiries indicate Outlook & Net Folders is unreliable. Another suggestion is to use IMAP with an online server & I am looking into that possibility.

    Thank for for your interest & help; it is appreciated.

    Outlook (MS Office 2000 Pro/SP-3)

    My son is the proprietor of a small business. When he is in the office he connects his notebook computer to a LAN. The office desktop computer acts as a server & that is the present extent of the LAN with an ADSL connection. In addition he has a personal address () used from home via a dial-up connection that he uses from OE6. He wishes to do all of this from one email client be it Outlook or OE6.

    The main question I have been asked is how to configure Outlook so that both he & his secretary can, in the office, see & reply to all the email received addressed to the business () & his secretary ().

    My initial response was that to cover all his requirements he would have to have a different email client in the office than at home. As it happens Outlook is available both on his notebook & the office desktop.

    I would be pleased to receive advice on whether his requirements are possible & if so how to configure the accounts. If not how to configure Outlook for use in the office on both computers.

    I look forward to your responses.
