Consolidate and archive multiple users emails in a single location without Exchange

I have a very small business-owner who gets POP email sent to 3 computers running Outlook.

So he wants to setup a PST that's accessible from all 3 computers for archiving purposes, so that if one user adds an email to it, the other users can access it from their computers as well.

1. Exchange + Server would be too expensive
2. Hosted exchange not an option -- His business is a franchise and Hosted Exchange wouldn't meet compliance

Any other solutions out there you guys could recommend?
Thanks!

PST's cannot be shared. Only one instance can be open in an outlook mailbox at a time.

You can try to create a mailbox on a provider (for example Gmail) and ask users to connect throw IMAP4
