Can I share outlook express?  If so, since I've not yet done any file sharing, I would need to read up on sharing in general, but for now, I was just curious how I'd share that?  if it's possible.

Can you explain a bit more about what you mean? Do you mean that you want to have two people access the same account with Outlook Express at the same time from two different PC's?

If so, you would at the very least have to put the mailboxes on a shared disk, and I imagine if it works at all, there are likely to be many problems.

If you meant something else, please explain.

no - simpler than that - I just want to look at the email in outlook express that's on one computer at my house from a different one.

The easy way to do this to select the option to "Leave Copy of Mail on Server"  on noth computers for a certain number of days.

Open Outlook Express on one of the computers, then Tools -> e-Mail Accounts
Highlight your default email account, then click on "Properties" then on "Advanced"
and "check" the box that reads "Leave Copy of Mail on Server"
then "check" the box that reads "Remove from Server after xx days"
(select a value like 5 or 10 for the numbers of days)

Then repeat the above steps on your other computer.

In the future, you will receive the same mail on both computers, as long as you check at least once in 5 or 10 days.

or, you can share the outlook express data directory -
C:\Documents and Settings\User Name\Application Data\Identities\{Class}. {Class}
then on outlook express :
go to tools> options> Maintenance, click the store folder button, and browse to the network share you just made.

(Problem: outlook cannot be opened in both computers at the same time.. :))

Hope that helps
Michel.
