If I change the location of the store folder in Outlook Express to something like \\other networked computer\location of existing storefolder\etc will both computers then have matching inboxes, sent mail, etc? In otherwords, can I get both computers to share common mail folders? Assuming of course that both machines are running the same version of Outlook Express.

If you really want to do this and make it work correctly then using a MAPI email client like Outlook would be the way to go.
