Is it possible for me to create a folder in Outlook that I will save emails in and then to give other people access to the same folder by mapping the folder in their own Outlook.  Of course, we all have different Outlook accounts, but I want to save some emails in a folder and allow others to view those so they can find certain documents if I'm away.

Documents should be stored in document folders on the hard drive and shared from there.  If you have a server that is the best place/way to do it.

If you have Exchange server you can create a public folder of the type "email" and store there, but I stand by my belief that email is not the right place to store documents.

Not trying to create a public folder, I agree that documents should be stored on shared drives, but that is not what I'm being asked to do.

Don't understand:  " so they can find certain documents if I'm away."

If not to find documents, then what?

I agree, it's silly, but it's what I'm being asked to do. The documents will mostly be e-mail messages with attachments.

With Exchange you can allow others to view your mailbox or create and use public folders.  

Without, I think all you can do is to allow others to logon to your system either at the console or RDS to read/print/distribute the needed data.

You can, of course, create a fictitious user and give that user access to ONLY either your .pst file or a separate pst file into which you have copied the data in question.
