Sorry to tell you that there is no such a service available for Outlook 97. Anyway, you have a way pass around it:

Exchange server 5.0 supports NNTP, it allows its public folder looks like a news topic on news server, so you may use Outlook 97 to access the public folder, other user may use news reader to access the same folder.

Sure, just add Exchange service to your Outlook 97 and setup it to connect to your Exchange server. Hmm..., do you have a Exchange server 5.0?

I don't know, but some Exchange Server we have got here. It must be only version 5.0, or it can be lover version of Exchange Server ? Maybe we have to upgrade it.

M$ has released the newest version of Exchange Server, 5.5! Some new features have been added in the great server, the most important one is its Enterprise feature, which supports clustering technology for critical missions.

Like an advert? :-))
