    I want to share email across a network with one other computer using Outlook 2000 on both PCs.

    I've been told to create a public folder, but when I ask 'help' about 'Public Folders' it tells me to create a new folder in the public folder... but there isn't one there?

    Help is taking me around in circles! How do I create a Public Folder in the first place?

    Go to file
    new
    Outlook Data File.

    Create the file in the directory you want it in.

    Then unless I am mistaken, you will just need to create a shortcut to that folder on the outlook bar from both computers.
