Is there an easy way to use Outlook over a network? I want to see a persons calendar that's on my home network and i want to send email over the network (not over the internet). I've tried to install Microsoft Exchange but i couldn't get it to work.
The only way that I am aware of this working is to have a centralized exchange server. That way all of the tools within outlook will work properly. Also the items like the calander are stored on the server rather than on the local machine. For a small LAN at home, this could be a lot more work that it would be worth.
One option that I have discovered you can do, and I don't know if this will get you want you want, but you can share your outlook.pst file on each machine then add a personal folder within outlook pointing to that share file. You can't send mail but it does allow you to view and edit the calander, inbox and all other folders on the remote machines.
