Outlook Again

I want to make it for I can view received e-mails from my reception computer on my office computer in Outlook 2003, the computers are obviously networked anyone any ideas on how to best achieve this.

I'll tried for years to find the outlook file over the network for I can place a shortcut to it on the toolbar without any joy.

I happy with one of two solutions a copy inbox of Outlook (reception) in my office computer version of Outlook or a shortcut to the file.

Cheers guys I know you will not let me down.

Regards,
zoo

PS. like the new aviator cheers. Sem

Add the Reception mailbox as an additional mailbox in your copy of Outlook.

Tools>Email accounts>Veiw or change>Change>More settings>Advance

Then add the Reception mailbox. It will appear in your folder list. It will display the number of unread mails but will not alert you when you get one.

Any probs, PM me.

Cheers, David

Jukie, think you'll find that only applies if the account is on an Exchange Server.

Zooman, if it's only emails you're concerned about, how about setting the reception computer to leave the emails on the server (presumably at the ISP) and then set your office computer to download them as normal?

Tools > Email Accounts > View or Change > Change > More Settings > Advanced > Leave a copy of messages on server

Check it for the reception PC, uncheck it for the Office PC.

Never done this, but can't see why it wouldn't work.

Failing that, get a cheaper mail server, such as WorkgroupMail, for when Exchange is overkill. Disclosure: I'm a reseller.

Alternatively, go for SmallBusinessServer 2003 and you get Exchange Server where you can access your full Outlook data store using OWA (Outlook Web Access).

SBS is awesome for an amazing price (c.400). SBS might be overkill though if that's all you need it for

Hi Sasha, my [limited] understanding is that it is BlackBerry who provide the server software and that is currently only available for Exchange and Domino. I have asked Softalk whether there is any planned integration with BlackBerry but don't expect a positive response; I'll get back to you when I hear from them.

Maybe after the EFY but not now. The only thing I need is to be able to read emails in the Inbox, Sent, and deleted. If that is the only way to go I will consider it for the next year (1st March in my case). Every thing else works lovely over the network & I also use this from home.
