Sharing .PST file

I have a portable pc that I use at the office, which is connected to a domain, (server 2003).  We do not use an email server per say.  We use our ISP's email and store the files locally when connected which I am assuming are stored within the pst file.  

My issue: When logging onto the PC, it gives me two options, "Log on to: " my userid "this computer" and the second option within the drop down box is the domain server.  When I log onto "this computer", I no longer see the emails that were saved when connected to the domain.  I can import the emails from the .pst file that is used when I am logged onto the domain, but I would like to make that seamless when using the two profiles.  Can I point Outlook to the same .pst file no matter which profile I am logged onto or am I approching this in the wrong direction.

Hi MrGD,

I hope I understand your question correctly. Are you the only one accessing the emails? If so, you should be able to click Tools ~ email accounts ~ Next ~ Change and select the same pst for each account.

cheers,

I thought I stumbled over the same idea and it seems to work. Thanks. One follow-up question before I award the points and close the problem, since you are pointing to the same .pst, but two different login profiles, will Outlook maintain different email connections, ex: outgoing mail servers?  Since I am using one at work, and one profile at home, I will have two different outgoing email servers.    Can not look at it right now because I can not login to the domain profile since I do not have a connection.

Hi MrGD,

Yes, the connection settings will stay with what ever profile you use.
