Default One PST w/multiple users on one PC


Using WinXP & Outlook 2003, how do you have one PST file shared between multiple users on a single PC? For example, Steve & Jerry have their own user accounts on the same PC and want to share a PST file so the Inbox, Contacts, and Address Book are the same, regardless of who logs in.

My hard drive crashed (have the data) but forget how I set this up four years ago. I do know the PST was located in the Shared Documents folder so that each user had access.

Help would be much appreciated!

Tim

Default Answer

The key is to have the common PST file located in "documents and settings/all users/documents/..." which is the same location as "Shared Documents". After getting Outlook to work for the first user, setup Outlook for the second user and have this second user point to the common pst file.
