Easy to install and easy to use

OLfolders enables your team members to share contacts, appointments, emails, tasks and all other Outlook objects with incredible ease.

The shared folders are displayed in a separate tree in Outlook like a shared disk is shown as a separate tree in the Windows Explorer.

OLfolders works like sharing a network drive, Outlook connects to any amount of data within less then a second, displaying all data from the server. If the user opens any email, attachment, contact or any other object, the data is transferred to the client. While one client is modifying an element, it is write-protected for all other clients.

The server application does not need any configuration, it imports user accounts from Windows and automatically access all data files which are configured in Outlook, even in multiple profiles.

If only one email account is needed for all workstations, the shared folder can be used as the Outlook default folder allowing access to the same emails at more than one workstation. If an email is read, it will change to unread at all clients at the same time.

Optionally certain folders and elements can be read or write-protected for certain users or completely hidden. Access to shared folders work exactly the same as access to personal folders, all features of Outlook are available in shared folders.

OLfolders contains an integrated Mail-Server for internal and external mail extends with server side junk- and virus filter. It allows sending internal emails between clients without using the internet. The Mail-Server can deliver any incoming mails to a shared folder without the use of Outlook. Mails for info@, support@ etc. can be stored directly to any folder at the shared file and read by all users.
