previously I am using windows98, all my email and my contact stayed in the exchange server and I am happy with that.

Then I changed my PC, it's now with windows XP Home SP2.  When I set up the outlook, it create a personnal folder for me (lookout.pst) together with my share in the exchange server.  When the other in-house user send me email, they go to my folder in the server, while external sent in are delivered to my local PC. How can I get rid of this and resume that all email will go to the server so that if I log-in with another PC I still can see the email and contacts.

In Outlook, try this:

Click Tools,
Click e-mail accounts
choose "View or change existing accounts"
click next
under the pull down menu for "Deliver new email to the following location" select your exchange account instead of your personal folders.

Hope this helps!

thanks for the cue.

Finally can return to the office for a try. If Exchange ( not internet email) is chosen, then In Outlook, tools you will not find e-mail accounts.

But following the cue, in Control Panel, Mail, Service, pick the Microsoft Exchange, Server, Properties, Delivery, I can find the option : Deliver new email to the following location. So at last, mission completed.
