I am not sure how to ask this.  I want to take a bill collection task and track the followup and the emails between us and the clients and I want that communication to be trackable by two users in our company.  What functionality should I use in Outlook and how to make it accessible to two users?  We are on a SBS 2008 using Exchange. The desktops have Outlook 2007 using .ost files.

Thanks for the reply. I just did that.  Looks promising. How to handle the email to clients outside of our organization?

Actually, I have two people addressed as recipients and it is saying my copy of the task will not be updated?

Are you just trying emails from your organization to outside customers or are you trying to set up an email flow internally or both?

You might look at this combination of Sharepoint and Outlook and creating workflows
