Hi,
can a mailbox in outlook be shared? I've got this scenario in mind:
- on pc1 outlook downloads mails.
- pc2 has outlook also. In some way, thanks to some kind of application or outlook connector, user2 on pc2 "sees" the same mailbox als user1 on pc1. He can edit it too. These changes appear on pc1 also.

This way two users manage one mailbox on two pc's. (at the same time)

Any idea? Or do you know of an alternative scenario? Thank you very much for your insights.

Paul

Yes possible with Exchange profile and user do not download the mail on the client pst.
so the users will manage the and keep all data on the server side.

What type of mail server you are using? You can configure an exchange mailbox on multiple computers or if you are not using exchange then you can use IMAP to configure the mailbox on both PCs.

well, there is no mailserver ... nothing, it's a peer to peer network with three pc's and two want to share a mailbox. But while I was driving home (yep, still working here) I thought IMAP might do the trick. Mails stay with the provider, the two mail clients (one per pc) sync with the provider, and all should be well. Right?

IMAP will be a good option. The mail will stay on the server and you will be able to access them from PC1 and PC2.

I guess it's a bit awkward  to give myself the points, I don't know if that is allowed, but I found the solution all by my self.
