Exchange 2003

I need to create the same account in an Exchange server 2003 on 2 different Pc's. When I create it, the emails on one pc's start dissapearing and appearing on the other. How do I sync the account on both PC's so the user sees the same emails on both. One is a laptop and the other a desktop.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

How are you doing this now?  Are you using POP or IMAP?  Because if you're using Native Exchange, then there should be no problem - I have my email - exactly the same copies - on two laptops and my office desktop... using Exchange.
Paul TozerCommented:
Check where outlook is downloading email to. If you have personal folders set up one one of them it will pull the email off the exchange server and put it in the personal folder (it may have warned you when the account was set up in outlook).

In outlook go to tools - account settings and check that it doesn't say personal folders if it does click change and change it to mailbox

if you look at folder list, then you will see two sets of folders, which are personal folders and then mailbox followed by the user name.

Basically you will need to remove the pst file. Back up the emails to somewhere you can find them.

From the Tools, Email Accounts menu, select View or change existing email accounts, then Next to open the Email Accounts dialog

Select the dropdown menu below Deliver new email to the following location and select the data store you want to use. This will be mailbox followed by the user name.

go back to the folder list then right click on personal folders and close it.

Make sure its the same on both machines.
