Default Configuring Outlook 2003 and 2007

I have created a dual boot with Vista on which is installed Outlook 2007, and
XP on which is installed 2003. I have a 3rd partition on which I load my
data files. I want to load my address book, emails, calendar notices, etc.,
on the data partition so that when I am in either OS, I can access my Outlook
information. Can this be done and, if so, how?

It should be. Point the mail profile in each OS to the same PST on the
shared drive.

Brian, while you should be commended for taking the time out to read the
problem, you have, what we call in the law, "begged the question". My
question basically asks how to load the PST files in the shared drive and
point my Outlook instances to those files. You tell me that if I do that it
should work.

Create a folder on the drive accessible to both operating systems. In one
OS, rename the PST to that folder and then start Outlook. When it complains
that it can't find the PST, browse to its new location, select it, and click
OK. Outlook will open as normal. Shutdown the OS.

Boot the second OS rename its PST out of the way. Start Outlook and when it
complains, browse to the PST on the shared drive, select it, and click OK.

One thing of which to be awa if you reference the same account in each
Outlook and leave copies of messages on the server, you will get duplicates
because one Outlook will have no idea that the other has downloaded any
messages and if they're still on the server, will download them believing
them to be new (which they will be to the current Outlook).
