Why not just post the information to a public folder?

If you want to get creative you could just create a folder in your mailbox and then give other users permission to see and use that folder.

Yes - if you are running Exchange as your back end. If you are using Outlook as a client for Lotus Notes or POP email, you can stop here. If you have Exchange, open the help (the dot or paper clip) and ask him about Delegates. You can then control what access each person has, etc. This also tells you how to add the components if you didn't istall them to begin with.

Yes they can be shared, no I would not do it. It is a support nightmare. It also invites corruption if you give too many others more than read only rights to a folder. If an Exchange server is avaliable, use Public Folders. They are more robust and easier to support. You can set up owners of the folder and they can maintain it as they need and see fit. We have hundreds of them and I just create them. The owners add users, rights, and over see the content. We get very little corruption.

As far as Outlook 98 is concerned, there is a possibility to use a new component called Net Folders. One of the catches is you must be able to send mail to the users you want to share the information with.

Take a look at the following article:
