Dual Boot XP & 7 sharing Windows Live Mail folders

I've partitioned my drive so dual boot XP and Win7. Running Windows Live mail on XP. Installed same on Win7.

The question is can I point the Win7 Live Mail at the XP Mail folders and collect email when I am in Win7. If yes, is this likely to cause any issues in XP when I am in XP and look at mail there?

If somebody has tried this and it works I will happily have a go myself - just didn't want to screw up my mail experimenting.

  1. I've never tried it, but I can't see why it wouldn't work.

    What I would recommend that you do is backup your mail folders on XP and try it out. If things go wonky, you can copy your backup back to the original folder. No harm no foul.
