So is the advice to install an IMAP server?
Chris, could you go over that description again? What's
the current ("LAN-connected") e-mail system? If it's
Microsoft Exchange, is it not enough simply to have the
end-users set a preference to Not-Delete, so that they
both see items?
I wrote little e-mail clients all the time. I'm sure I
can give you one within the price range you mention. I
think we need to understand the expectations better,
though, before we can give good help.
