Hi grott,

It's easy enough to set up, but carries with it a danger.

Log on as any user, open Outlook Express. Click tools/options/maintenance
tab, click on the store folder button. Move it to a shared location
accessible by all users (right now it is under their local profile). "Ok"
your way out and close Outlook Express. Logoff and repeat the steps for each
user, this time selecting the location selected/created by the first user.

*IMPORTANT* Do NOT use fast user switching with Outlook Express left open.
You (and all other users) MUST remember to close it before switching. If any
user fails to do this, the mail store may be corrupted beyond repair, and
all saved messages will be lost.

Are you leaving email on your server so her email client can download
it? Double check before you answer. :)

Is far safer than mine as well, only problem is that there is still a
possibility that one account will not see the message if it is not used for
the specified deletion time. Plus, it also creates two separate email stores
(which isn't really a problem).

Yep. Two separate stores should not be a problem with the size of recent hard
drives (even my old one!). The deletion time would have to be played with depending
on how often the accounts were accessed by each user, but that should take too much
work.
I am wondering if sharing the mail store as you described, with fast user switching
enabled, could even be safely implemented in a future version of OE (thinking
Longhorn) without closing OE before switching. Something for the wish list, I
suppose, but I'd rather the OE team fix some other long-standing bugs before they
create new ones. ;-)

The mail store (cf. identities &
http://www.insideoe.com/files/store.htm#storemain) as we know it will not be
present in LH.
