I have my Outlook 98 working great on internet email dialup to my ISP.  Now, I also want to use it on my two-user Windows98 office network, for email back and forth with my assistant.  How can I do this?

One way is using MS Exchange, but that is an expensive route for two machines

You mean you wish to set up a seperate mail server for the two of you?  I would suggest if it's just two people perhaps going for something along the lines of WinPopUp or WinPopPlus which is a small shareware application, at far less expense.  You wouldn't be gettin the flexibility of an actual email though.  But for notification and small message purposes that would do the job.

This is silly :)
Microsoft already provides the answer with Microsoft Post Office, that comes with 95 & 98.

I assume your using 95, which is easier to setup :)
Let me know if you would like to to tell you how.  I have set this up for many clients who use it for internal mail.  Fairly easy too.
