each copy of outlook stores its own version of your emails and address book. You can export such things from one pc and import into the other. As you use your kit they will not stay synchronised.

There are two solutions that I am aware of.

You can use third party software to synchronize e-mail between two PC's running Outlook. A free trial is available:

Alternatively if you are prepared to use old Microsoft software, Outlook from Office 2000 will allow you to use Net Folders to share the e-mail. Unfortunately Microsoft dropped Net Folders support in Office 2002 and later versions but I am happily using the old application in this way with no loss of functionality.
