If suppose I have 10 PCs in my office. Microsoft Outlook is configured on all 10 PCs. I want to configure Outlook in such a way that any user can use any PC to access their outlook account (Multiple machine) I dont want to use Outlook web access. Is it possible?

I'm not sure but I believe you would need a server with a local domain & roaming profiles.

Is it possible?

Lets say you have user1. Person goes to each pc and checks mail which is downloaded locally. Message downloaded on pc1 won't be on pc2 etc.

Now if you had exchange you could use OWA which would follow the person where ever they logon to because the email stays on the server.

Alternately you can have them do web access [if available] to your hosted email solution.

Wanderer, he said that he didn't want to use OWA. What about the roaming profiles with folder redirection?

Yep I know he doesn't want OWA but it sure makes sense for his setup.

Excellent thought about using roaming profiles.

I don't consider roaming profiles accept on a very limited basis due to the performance hit you take with them and the difficulty in troubleshooting when things go bad.

Guess you could put the pst files on the server with roaming profiles. Only issue is the user has to exit outlook before logging in on another machine since only one access is allows with a pst.

Of course uses will need to keep outlook clean and tidy or when everyone logs in the network will crawl and it will take forever to update on the local pc.

I could never trust my users to do that :-(

LOL Clean & tidy don't describe the average user. That's for sure.
