Setting up a non-Exchange E-mail server using Outlook & Outlook express

Hi all,

I am setting up an E-mail server (Non-Exchange) I have Mac and PC clients
The Mac clients will be using Outlook Express the VP’s will be using Outlook (PC)
All other PC users will use Outlook Express (to save on cal’s) My questions are>
1. Can I setup all clients to IMAP so that the e-mail will be saved on the e-mail server?
2. Can I setup all clients with PST’s and save them in a home folder on a server?
3. Can I setup all clients to access Public folders stored on a server?
4. Last question if I backup the E-mail & the server that has the Home folders & Personal folders am I covered if a clients
computer blows up?

Thanks in advance..

Since you didn't mention what email server you are using, it is impossible to say what features and capabilities it has.

1. Not all mail servers support IMAP.
2. Yes
3. Again, depends on the abilities of the mail server, most do not support public folders
4. You would lose their specific client configuration

Oh yeah....and since its web based, all clients would see the same screens :)
