Workgroup Mode, Internet eMail, and PST Sharing Dilemnas
Posted on 2003-11-11
I am setting up a small network that must meet these criteria:
1. One main administrative workstation, one user workstation, and one workstation dedicated to remote access (i.e. pcAnywhere).
2. All workstations must share the PST file on admin workstation.
3. All workstations must be able to have Outlook open simultaneously (using the same PST) and see what eMails have been read, replied to, forwarded, etc.("instantly", I might add) by any other user.
I've chosen OutlookFolders (v1.94) because, as far as the brass is concerned, an Exchange Server is totally out of the question. Now, I have the admin station Outlook running in Internet only, and the user stations in Workgroup mode.
Now here's my problem: I can't figure out how to send, reply to or forward mail on the user workstations. When opening a new email to compose on a user station (Worgroup Mode), the send button has no down arrow next to it (to allow me to choose an account to send with). When I click send, the message gets shot to the Outbox, but nothing happens. If I go into the message in the Outbox, there's no email address in the "From" field. I'm lost.
Where do I go from here? Thanks in advance!
