I have a desktop PC running MS Vista Home Premium 32 bit with SP2 and a laptop using MS XP Professional with SP3. They are connected via a home network. The PC uses Windows Mail and the laptop Outlook Express. I want to share sent items between these two programs. ie when I send an e-mail from the PC it is also saved to the sent items folder on the laptop. Is this possible?

Best wishes

Outlook Express is not available on Windows Vista.
Windows Mail is not available in XP.

Windows Live Mail is available for both platforms, which is the replacement for the two aforementioned programs.

You can do what you' want but you'd have to set up a third computer and have both machines (with Live Mail on them) point to the same location. Alternatively point one machine to the other.
Then of course the issue you'll have is if both clients were open at the same time. File access clash = potential corruption.

Use Gmail.com instead and all of your email is always there, no matter what computer you're on.
