thanks for your answer. I'll try to make clear what I'm doing.
With XP there is a user for my wife and one for me.
Both users are using the same folder as location for mail with Outlook
With Outlook Express this is possible with
"extras\options\extended\maintenance\order location" to change to place
where to store your mails.
If you do that for both users, different users are able to work on an
identical mail repository that is always up to date when they are logged in.
even switching between users and letting Outlook Express open does not lead
With Windows Mail under Vista I'm not longer able to use a existing mail
folder with already content in it as a replacment for the current one.
With Outlook Express I was asked, if I would like to use the current content
as my mail.
I hope this clarified things a bit.
