I might just take you up on your offer. Just a few clarifiying questions
on top of what I've already asked previously.

No. Brutus Server needs to be installed on a Windows box somewhere on
the LAN. e-b is the client part. Brutus Server takes care of translating
whatever e-b says into native MAPI.

Sure. The only limiting factor is how many client connections the server
hardware is able to handle. If it is only you then only a small box is

-> @ Work, I have my laptop connected to the local LAN(only 1 LAN pt
available and no HUB/Switches), and then the PC connected to my Laptop

If the Windows PC is connected to the LAN using your laptop as a
router/gateway, then yes. As a rule of thump: If you could (in principle
at least) install and run Outlook on the Windows PC then it is good
