Best way to do this...? (home networking related)

1 Desktop PC, 1 laptop.

Both want to one shared location for documents and outlook email.

Best option I thought would be to get a network drive and have one location where all docs are stored, and where the outlook data file would be stored.

my concerns about doing it this way are

1) Speed, it wouldn't be as quick as locally stored data
2) Can 2 users use the same outlook data file at once?

Data can be backed up to a further external USB drive connected to back of the NAS Drive.

The users want this to be as simple as possible, currently using syncing software which they say is a mess.

Anyone have any better ideas?
