Microsoft outlook

I want to keep the saved files and all e-mails on a remote server, so I can see what has been read, and what has not, also being able to add or look at any of the e-mails in the file from any location. I.e.: Multiple PC’s, Ipad, Iphone all having access to the SAME files.

I already have all the e-mails, DOWNLOADING on all these devices, but all I end up with is not knowing when e-mails have been delt with or not by multiple users, and continuously deleting or double checking the same things.

This is for an exchange server or some other kind of email?

sounds like you need a network share and a pst created on that share that you can move read files to and give everyone or all the users read/write permissions on that share

Currently two computers work-grouped.  Emails kept on web host.  Outllook setting is ticked-leave a copy of message on server.  So multiple users cant see if an item is being opened previously or not.  Not exchange server.

If i created a network share/folder and had the .pst file on that, that may work for office computers, but not iphones/ipads, they will still look up the email account on the web host no?

sounds like you are set up as pop email?  have you thought about setting the accounts up as imap?  In that way all your folders would be sync'd on all computers and you would know if the email was read or not because once read, it would appear as read on all computers

Hosted exchange will accomodate the issue better than just changing to imap so i accepted exchange as the solution
