Share OE files between machines on network drive?



  • 1. Rules stopped working
    OE 6. The rules all used to work but now everything gets dumped into the main folder. I know they are correctly set up because they all used to work, and have done for years. Is there any reason why suddenly they might stop working?
  • 2. e-mails with no "from" address
    How can I block e-mails with no "from" address? I choose to block sender, but OE6 will not let me since there is no sender. I have received 4 of these e-mails this month. -- -Jesse
  • 3. OE Addon to sort AOL IMAP Email - Available? Possible?
    I'm using OE 6 and added my AOL email accounts, but Microsoft says OE doesn't support filtering or sorting IMAP email. Has anyone found a solution provider with a plug in for OE (or Outlook 2003) that will allow this, or is it just technically impossible? Some people have suggested Thunderbird but I'd rather stay with Microsoft - Can Outlook 2003 autosort IMAP messages? Outlook 2000 couldn't. Thanks, Michael
  • 4. I'd like to know why folks fear LINUX ?
    I'd really like to know why folks fear linux , I have found over time that Linux is secure, stable, and lots of fun to learn . The biggest go getter is the price , which is absolutely free . The world really needs to take a closer look at what is going on with this wonderful Os.

What you can do is clone your ID for use on two machines.

Spam Averse < XXXX@XXXXX.COM > did some thinking and came up with 
these words:

OE is not designed for this type of sharing.  For this functionality you 
need to look at MS Outlook.

1.OE files on a shared network drive?

I ddon't mind running OE on drive C, but it means I have a different set of 
messages on each machine.  I have an office upstairs and a lab downstairs, 
and sometimes it's tiresome running up and down the stairs just to track 
email or news.

Can I set up OE to store its messages and address book on a shared 
network-accessible drive?

thanks not share file on network drive/server in windows xp

With Windows XP it is easy to lock a file folder from others viewing by "not 
sharing" other users, on an individuals own hard drive that is not networked. 
  But if you take this file folder and move it or copy it to a network drive 
the "not shared" security measures are stripped and removed from the file 
folder.  I have tried everything possible and can't get it to work.  Is it 
possible to Lock out everyone but the owner of that one file folder on a 
networked drive/server?  

When I go in and do this, it also locks me out with everyone else and I am 
the owner of the file.  I've gone in as administrator and locked out everyone 
but me the owner and still I'm locked out.  Can this be done?

Thank you

3.setting up a shared drive over a two machine wireless network

I am trying to access the hard drive of a win2k machine 
via a winXP machine over a IEEE811.2b network. How do i 
set this up?

4.Cannot copy file from network share on NTFS drive to local NTFS drive

I have an XP Pro machine with a folder shared to the network with full 
control for everyone. Every other machine on the LAN, regardless of 
Windows version or user account level, has no problem reading/writing on 
this share. The share resides on an NTFS drive. There is no domain.

I have install Vista on three computers (two x86, one x64) and have had 
the exact same problem on all three: the Vista machines can access the 
above network share, open files on it, and write to it as expected. 

The problem is with copying a file from that share to a local NTFS 
volume. I can copy it to a local FAT32 volume no problem since that 
strips the NTFS data from the file. I can then copy it from the FAT32 
drive to the NTFS drive. Attempting to copy a file from the network 
directly to the local NTFS disk results in an error message reading 
"Destination Folder Access Denied: You need Permission to Perform this 
Action, Try again/Cancel". I don't get a UAC elevation prompt.

However, if I create a file on the shared folder from the Vista 
computer, I can copy it back to the Vista computer. Its like there's 
something in the NTFS data of the files created on XP that Vista won't 
copy onto its own NTFS volume. 

Things I've tried with NO effect:

1) Disabled UAC

2) Logged on as an administrator

3) Logged on as a regular user

4) Enabled THE administrator and logging on as such

5) Changed where I'm copying the file to (ie. Desktop, Documents, etc)

6) Created new folder on C and verified that everyone and their brother 
has full control of it before attempting to copy a file to it from the 

The only variable I've found that has any effect on the issue is the 
file system of either the network share or the local disk. If either one 
is FAT32, file copying work. If both are NTFS, it fails. 

5.Can't connect to shared drive on W2K machine from Windows 98 machine

When I try to connect to a shared drived on a Windows 2000
machine from a Windows 98 machine, I am prompted for a
password to connect to "machinename/IPC$" - the password
requested is not one known to me (i.e. - not an account on
the machine, etc.).  The Windows 98 machine does "see" the
W2K machine - i.e. - it shows up in the Network
Neighborhood.  So what am I doing wrong?  Thanks.
