I've been trying to make sense out of an assortment of products from\nMicrosoft involving multiple computers and I'm getting lost. I have a home\nnetwork of three machines running Windows 95 SE, Windows XP, and Vista. The\nlater two machines have legal copies of Office 2003 Professional. Outlook is\nmy mail server program.\n\n\n\nThese machines are on separate floors, I'm the sole user, and they are often\nall on at the same time. The 95SE machine gets little use and if it has to\nbe excluded to find my solution, it's alright. The other two, however, must\nbe able to access my POP3 email and Outlook's Calendar, and Contact files.\nIdeally, I'd like the XP machine to retain the Office Suite with the\nelaborate filters and folders for email plus the calendar and all it's\nreminders and alarms but I need to have access to it from the Vista machine.\n\n\n\nThis is not an enterprise, just a dream perhaps involving an elaborate\nnetwork for a home system. I'm retired, have the time, and the interest to\nmake one of these machines a server .but I'd be starting nearly from scratch\non the learning curve.\n\n\n\nCan someone put me on a path to finding a way to get this accomplished in\nthe most cost-effective way? I've read about Microsoft Exchange and\nSharePoint but they sound like they're for enterprises and probably bring\nenterprise-size costs... but I'm not sure.
