I use iFolder keep my Outlook Express files the same on my home and work computer. I also get the added benefit of having the files backed up on the iFolder server. To switch the Outlook Express file location to iFolder, I select the Tools menu in Outlook Express. I scroll to "Options", select the "Maintenance" tap and change the "Store Folder" location to the "Outlook Express" folder which I've made under my iFolder home directory.

NOTE: this won't work with database-type e-mail programs such as GroupWise, because iFolder does not synchronize files as a set and GroupWise needs the files in the archive to be maintained as a set of files. In other words, don't try this with GroupWise, or you'll be sorry.
