We have office 97, running Outlook 98; network of 7 terminals, running Lantastic network, using Win 95.  We want to have one, single, shared, (and preferrably not editable/damageable by all), Outlook address file.  How do we do this?  Our mail server and internet are non-Microsoft products.  I noted the post 9/4/98 called "Using a shared .Pst without Exchange Server", but I'm still lost.

I'm looking into networking Outlook without Exchange Server myself but you might want to think about sharing a common contact list. If you put it in a Public Folder you could give everyone read only access and update it when ever the administrator feels it's necessary.

Connect to the internet and go to Add/Remove programs in the control panel and select Outlook 98.  Select to add additional Components.  It will connect to the WEB and start setup.  Let it detect settings on your computer and select to install NETFOLDERS on all of the computers you want networked.  This is the component you need to share Outlook 98 over a network without an Exchange Server.  It will work for Win95 or NT.  It actually updates by E-mail, so all of the users need an
E-mail address.

Our office uses tasks for tracking milestones - in other words, are Access database has our assignments.  (our addresses come from the database also ) Any suggestions on how to automate tasks in a business environ would be greatly appreciated.  We've had such things pop up as one person not being able to assign another person's task etc. etc.  The common thread here is to not use a tank to mow the lawn - we want it simple, consilidated, etc.
