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.
