If you want your clients to run Outlook from a server, you can set up a network share. A network share is a directory on a file server to which users can connect to install and run Outlook. A single network share can be used by multiple clients that use the same network operating system. Users can choose either Typical, Custom, or Run From Network Server installation. The Run from Network Server option leaves most of the Outlook files on the server so that multiple users can share them.
Running Outlook from a server reduces the amount of hard disk space used on client computers but requires continuous access to the network share while Outlook is running.
You can create a client installation point for Outlook.
Select Drive Letter and type a drive letter if you want users to connect to the server using a drive letter.Setup attempts to connect to the server and displays an error if it cannot connect.
