    Network imac and pc laptop email


    Not sure if this is something DIY or should get the experts in.

    I want to network an imac running on OSX 10.6.8 with a laptop running on Windows 7 for file sharing but more importantly emails.

    I need each to be able to see up to date inbox, sent, read, and all other email folders etc...

    My mac email program is Entourage and using office outlook on the pc

    I am running on a VPS.

    I did look at imap option, but wanted to avoid the type of problem that occurs when using a program like Horde in that every time the inbox is accessed all the emails drop down from the birth of time unless you go to the server and manually remove them.

    Is this something i need to get the experts in for ?

    Many thanks for any help

    IMAP is really the only option here with all storage left on the server. Unless there's something out there I've never heard of I don't believe there's any other way to 100% synchronize EVERYTHING down to folder level, certainly not without having to at least re-certify what still exists and where it is from somewhere.
