Outlook Express on 2003 Terminal Server

Hi All, hope somebody can put me straight on this...

I have a 2003 terminal server which is used to distribute a business application to remote depots.
At each depot there are 2 or more PC's that log in with a common depot username.  So I have multiple concurrent logins at each depot, effectively from the same user.

I have recently tried to use Outlook Express 6 to allow each screen access to a common depot email account.
This initially appeared to work OK, but quickly become erratic with various problems, primarily with the address book becoming corrupted.

Having though about it some more, am i trying to make OE6 do something it is not intended for?  Am I likely to suffering from file locking problems in an application that was really only intended for single user interaction?

I've googled the web for info, and searched EE for info, but no luck.  Could somebody please confirm my thoughts or offer advice / alternatives to my problem?

Thanks...

Hi CAMSYSTEMS,

Having multiple users log on to the same machine with the one account and access the same OE identity does not sound good at all.

I dont know your setup, or precisely what you are trying to achieve, but individual user logins and a shared exchange mailbox would be my recommendation.

That is assuming you already own exchange :)  

Hope that helps,

Hi,

Yup, it soon became apparent that what I was trying to do was not going to work.  OE being intended for use as a single instance app.  

Thanks...
