I have just set up a hard wired (through the mains) network and both pc's can share the internet, files, pictures and video's etc.

When I open outlook email on the main pc (attached to the router) which I use most of the time everything appears to be fine, but if I open the email on the other pc the historical email is not available. The reverse happens if I open email on the other pc, then the same email is not available on the main pc.

I would like to set up all family members with access to all their email in Outlook etc from both pc's

Regards :)

Which version of Outlook are you running? Have you set both systems to see the same PST file? Without MS exchange, you probably cannot share the mail in outlook on two systems at the same time..

Best thing I have found is to use Burrotechs OfficeMail Email server. Set this up on one PC and have it retrieve email, then set both PC's to get their email from OfficeMail.
