outlook mail sits?

Does the mail for each user sit on the Exchange server or on the client computer.
Would I be able to check my mail from another machine...well yeah I could by setting up the information right?
But what about my tasks and all the calender information I have on my own computer...is it stored on the server so it can be accessed on another machine? If I log in.

Yes you can:
Everytime you connect to the Exchange Server with your Exchange client, the server checks if the files on the client's computer are up to date. If they're not, all the information from the server is downloaded to the client.

Where is this information stored on the server?
If I have tasks and subfolders it will be viewable on another machine?
Typically, the contents of your mailbox are maintained within the Exchange Server Information Store.  But the way you've configured your client could alter this.  If you've set up Outlook to deliver mail to a personal folder (.PST,) mail will get delivered to the personal folder instead of your Exchange Server based mailbox, and therefore you won't be able to retrieve that mail to another client.  If you're using a POP client (i.e. Outlook Express, Eudora, etc.,) mail will be despooled to the client, again making it impossible to later retrieve that mail to another PC.

Contact me if you'd like to go over the configuration of your mail client.
