  • Hi,

    According to my research, I'm afraid there is not a automatic method for POP account. The method I metioned above may be the most safe way to meet your needs.

    However, if you configure your accounts as IMAP or Exchange then your data will be stored in the server, so the next time your configure your accounts as IMAP or Exchange on another computer (Outlook), the data will be synced automatically. This should be a suggested method for you.

    Hope this can be helpful.

    Regards,

    Aidan Wang

  • Hi,

    Yes, you're right. Sharing PST files may lead to corruption of the PST.

    To achieve your purpose, it is suggested to configure your email account as IMAP or Exchange on multiple computers, then the data of your account will be synced with the server once you configure your account on a new computer. In this way, you are able to use your data in multiple computer at the same time.

    Learn more about how to configure your email account as IMAP in Ourlook, please refer the "Use advanced setup to add a POP or IMAP email account in Outlook for Windows" section in this article.

    After configuring your account as IMAP on a new computers, you can export your date to a new local PST file, then if you'd like to use the data of this PST file in other email account, just configure that account on this computer's Outlook and import the PST file.

    you can export your date to a new local PST file, then if you'd like to use the data of this PST file in other email account, just configure that account on this computer's Outlook and import the PST file.

    I understand, and this is my method for this issue now. But because I try to find another automatic method for it.
