How can I send & receive mail between our two networked computers (both using Outlook Express) and have the new mail appear in the Inbox on the other computer? The relevant folders are hidden on my XP system!

YOu need a mail server. The way I have done it is with a Linux server running Sendmail (smtp) and Qpopper (pop3). Works well.

The way I have done it before is to set up accounts in OE & enable them at your ISP, and send via the net/ISP assuming both comps have access to the internet. Otherwise I think Outlook or MS mail will do the trick.
