Outlook & Outlook Express

Hi,

Does anyone know if you can make Outlook and Outlook Express share the same inbox/contacts etc.. (perhaps using a .pst file?)

I'm dual booting between XP and 2000, and I don't want to setup Office in 2000 (which I only use for certain things). I use Outlook XP under Win XP, but would like to be able access my inbox/contacts and check my mail etc.. using Outlook Express when I'm running Win 2000.

I know how to export/import the inbox and mail accounts etc.. from Outlook, but don't know much about Outlook Express. I also don't want to have to import/export every time I switch from one OS to the other. Can they share the same inbox/contacts on an ongoing basis?

Any ideas anyone?


thanks,

Mine appears to share contacts anyway (i haven't done anything), i'm not sure about inbox stuff, cause they may be stored in different formats

Just setup the mail account in Outlook 2002 and import your contacts into it. You should never have to use OE again. Except for usenet. I dont think you can use Outlook 2002 for that only.

thanks for the replies, but perhaps i didn't explain:

I have dual boot.. XP & Win 2000

in XP I have Offive XP set-up & use Outlook 2002

in Win 2000 I don't have Office set up at all, and don't want to.


I just want to use OE when I'm in Win 2000, but want it to have the same inbox and contacts as Outlook does under XP.

thx,

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
