I want to access my Outllok PSt file from two computers( laptop and desktop) so that i get the updated list of email on both of them.
i have kept the pst file in my third main computer, and access that file in both of the other computers via mapping.
but the problem is that in both on the computer when ever i send and receive emails come individually( copy of emails )
i.e i am using laotp and press send and recieve i got 3 emails , then in night when i use my desktop i again recieve 3 emails so i got copy of each email( i am using the same PST file from main Computer)

I guess their is some other file which keep the count or track of email messgaes..

Please help.

PSTs are just somewhere to store e-mails, they do not hold any configuration information.  Also, they do not work well across a network, and my advice is to not do that.

If you are using Exchange, then the two mailboxes will always be in sync.

What type of account are you using?  POP and IMAP accounts also work differently.  In general, Outlook is able to see which messages it hasn't downloaded and so downloads them.  However, if they are removed from the server then the second client cannot download them.

So the primary answer to your question is that although you are sharing the storage location (PST), you are not sharing the knowledge of what has been previously downloaded.
