A client of mine uses Outlook in two different places. While at home she uses a computer to access her messages. She would also like to be able to access the same mail on a different computer when she is at the office. Is there a surefire way of doing this or is it not possible? Thanx in anticipation

It's simple, you just add the mail account to both computers, assuming she is allowed to get her mail at work ;-)

I would advise clicking the 'leave a copy of messages on server' option on the work computer so you can get any mails delivered there at home as well.  This is on the advanced tab in OL97 (yes I'm still stuck on OL97).  You get hte choice of how long to leave messages on the server, I'd set it to a couple of days or so.

Hope this helps.
