How can I network .pst files to a central server

I have four computers that I wish to network .pst files to a central server. I wish to retain the current subfolder structure currently created on each client machine and be able to access these "networked folders" with the same look and feel as if they were still on the clients. The central server would access the pop and smtp accounts on the ISP computer, but instead of email going to individual clients, it would go to the central server which would then do spam and virus checking as well as archive the files. Each client has about five different accounts (email addresses). I know I could use Exchange for these functions but I do not wish to over complicate the system and create administrative nightmares. Can this be done and how.

PST files on network drives are not supported by Microsoft. Doing this risks corruption of the files and losing messages. You may need something like a Mimosa or some other message archiving system.
