    Default Re: Sharing Email Address

    If you simply want to share a single email account setup each machine to leave mail on the server.
    One client,
    however, should be configured to act as the "master" and have the ability to remove messages from
    the server
    after X days. I use this strategy so my wife and I can share one email account between three XP Pro
    machines.
    In my case I use Outlook 2002 on a desktop and a laptop and my wife uses Outlook Express.

    Point each of the computers to the mail server at your ISP. Then on one computer go to "Tools ->
    Accounts",
    highlight the email account, select "Properties -> Advanced", and check the box to "Leave a copy of
    messages
    on the server". DO NOT check the "Remove from server after X day(s)" box. On the other computer go
    to
    "Tools -> Accounts", highlight the email account, select "Properties -> Advanced" and check the box
    to "Leave
    a copy of messages on the server". Check the "Remove from server after X day(s)" box and select how
    many days
    to leave messages on the server. That way all computers can read the mail, but only one controls
    when and/or
    if the messages are actually deleted off of the server.

    You could also use the FREE Mercury Mail Transport System to setup a local server. Its a bit of over
    kill, IMHO, in your situation...

    No, since I only use Outlook Express and/or Outlook on my desktops/laptop and PocketPC.
