Exchange server messages don't show up when I log in with a different computer.

I'm building a lab with Windows 2000 Server, running Exchange 2000.

I setup OE email on the server, Windows Pro, and XP SP2 machines.

When I send and receive email from any one machine with a given user account, it only shows up on that machine, not when I log into another machine with that user.

I thought the messages would be on the Exchange server, and no matter which machine I logged in to, I would see all my messages.

I must be doing something wrong.

Addendum:  Email works - I can send messages to users.  It's just that if I send it from one machine (the recipient gets it) It only shows up as "sent" from that one machine.

You are using Outlook Express?
That stores email locally. If you want email messages to be stored on the server then you need to use the full version of Outlook configuration to connect to Exchange server - not a POP3/IMAP server.
