When you use Microsoft Exchange in Windows 95 to access any shared-file- system-based (SFS) post office, shared folders on the post office are not available.

Examples of SFS post offices include the post offices created by Microsoft Windows for Workgroups 3.x, Windows 95, and Microsoft Mail3.x.
The Microsoft Exchange client in Windows 95 does not provide the ability to view shared folders on an SFS post office.
To view shared folders in Microsoft Exchange in Windows 95, perform the following steps:
  1. Download the Exupdusa.exe file from the Microsoft Software Library to an empty folder.

    NOTE: If you copy the file to your Windows\Desktop folder, be sure you delete the following files from the Windows\Desktop folder after Exupdusa.exe is installed: Exchgupg.inf, Exchng32.exe, Readme.txt, Mapi.dll, Mapi32.dll, Msfs32.dll, Wgpoadmn.dll, and Wmsui32.dll.
  2. In My Computer or Windows Explorer, double-click the Exupdusa.exe file you downloaded in step 1.
  3. Double-click the Readme.txt file for installation instructions.
