Shared workstation running Windows 98 wi

By stromn ·
We have a very small network with one NT 4.0 server and 3 Windows 98 workstations. The workstations are each shared with several users. We use Microsoft Office 2000 Business Edition with Outlook 2000 for our Internet email service.

The problem we are having is that even though I set up individual user accounts, the users on the shared workstation can see each other's mail. I have tried setting it up to look at individual mailbox.pst files, to no avail.

How do I set up Windows 98 to allow several users to share the workstation with individual logons and individual Outlook mailboxes?

Hi,

While I as you found problems trying to configure this. I have found that by using the latested Outlook Express, you can Create Identities for viewing mail. The Identities allow for only the person signing in to see their individual mail. I believe though that Identities is only build in Outlook Express and not Outlook 2000

If you use the UNC NAME of \\xxx\sharename
and specify local account to log with from the map drive dialog on the NT 4.0,this may get you on the right track.

Open Control Panel. Double-click passwords and move to the User Profle Tab. Click "allow users to customize..." and select the two other boxes that appear below referring to Network Neighbohood and the Start Menu. This will give each user thier own profile similar to the way NT does it and allow individual mail and desktop settings.

Are you authenticating on a domain server? If so, on the shared workstations, create email profiles for each user. Ensure individual user email accounts are are assigned to the proper user account. Then each user must signed on to read his/her email.
