  • Outlook Express how to store folder location to network mapped

    Hi

    I could not find the proper section with the forum to post my question which is related to outlook express. therefore I though here would be the best place.

    I am looking to change location for OE store folder from default location to a network mapped drive.

    In the quote below it says it is not possible

    http://www.insideoe.com/files/store.htm
    You cannot move the store to a network drive nor a removable drive.

    While in the link below it says it is doable (I followed the instructions but it did not work)

    http://www.infopackets.com/news/soft...age_device.htm

    Although advices here http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.ph...2535606/1.html it is not a good practice to do that , but I am trying to find out how to achieve that ?

    Thanks

    I'm just curious as to why you would want to do this.

    OE is meant for the home user, those that do not have a server floating around.

    I'm about 99% sure that this is not doable.

      Did you folllow the link a bit further: http://www.insideoe.com/faqs/why.htm#network
      This talks about sharing OE between network users -- not possible

      AFAIK, if you have a network drive mapped to a drive letter, you can put it there (but risk corruption if the drive drops offline)
      But as Boondock asked, WHY?
