    You can add as many accounts to Outlook as you like. You can do that and use Save Password so that people dont have to remember each other's passwords.
    Although I don't know why anyone would be willing to share their email and contacts list.

    Right click on the folder you want to share, go to Properties>Permissions and add the people who can have access to it.

    This works for all folders including Inbox, Contacts, Calender, etc.

    We dont have a real server, we just have a peer to peer network and I am using Microsoft Exchange Server I dont know if this makes any difference but I dont see an "account" option in the tools menu. Also I have tried right clicking on the folders and I do not see any option for sharing. I dont want to pick up anyone eles email I just want for everybody in the office to be able to read each others. The type of work we do we need to share information we all go to each others machines anyway. I hope this makes things a little more clear.

    I don't know anything about mail servers, but I think you have to use IMAP because with POP after the message is downloaded to a system, it is deleted from the server.

    Here's an idea.
    Create an email address specifically to show everyones mail in.
    Set up a mail rule on everyone's account, that says Forward All Messages and have it forwarded to the account, then give everyone the password to that account.
