I have 1 email address sales@whatever.com. 2 of my salespeople need access to this email account to download orders and reply to customers. Both people work from different locations in the building. My problem is both computers have to be in sync with each other, so if one person replies to an order the other person knows about it. What's the best email client and how so I set it up.

Hello,

Use Outlook MAPI and take it out of cached mode.

I would recommend using IMAP.  With IMAP, all the mail folders are located on the server instead of locally on the computer.  It won't matter if you view your email from outlook, from the web, from a smartphone, or from another computer with outlook.  All mail folders will be in sync.  I would recommend outlook 2010 as it has imap improvements.

If you are using Exchange, why would you use IMAP instead of MAPI?

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

You're assuming that because the question was in the exchange zone that they have an exchange server.

I think that is a logical assumption.

My server doesn't support exchange, so sounds like imap is a good choice. And Thunderbird as a client.

If you know what kind of email server you have or email host, you should be able to look up the imap settings for that provider.

IMAP and Thunderbird should work for what you're trying to do.  We have people using that combination and it works for them.
