MS Outlook 98

We have install outlook 98, but we have some uses that move from one area to another. We currently have the mail boxes on the local PC and have setup profiles for multipule users of the same PC. But we would like some people to beable to log on to any PC in the orginisation and access there mail seeing the inbox etc. from anywhere. Is there a way to get Outlook to find a mail box say on a server ver there mail logon.
The services we are using are Internet Email,Microsoft Mail, personal address book. The mail server is MS Mail 3.5.

You could put the user's PST files on a server as opposed to keeping them on the local machine. That would make them accessible from multiple PCs more easily. There's also some information here about roaming profiles that might help:

A bunch of it is about Exchange Server but some of it is applicable to non-Exchange Server installs. You just need a network where you can store user profiles on a server (should work with Netware and/or NT networks)

Place the users files on a shared folder on the server.

Map a drive to this folder and configure outlook to use the drive and load the .pst files.
