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?

Public Folders appear if you are running a mail server such as MS exchange. They appear automatically once you have configured outlook to connect to the server IE:
assuming you have a mail server in place

go to outlook and reconfiure mail set up to access the exchange Post box.

If you havent got exchange or a similar post box system you wont have public folders
