ipod on two computers

Having recently bought an ipod touch, I found it really eay to set it up on my home PC and personal webmail account. But I also want it to synchronise with my work outlook for mail, contacts and calender. I don't know how to do this. Do I have to install itunes on my work PC and will the ipod work with two separate computers in this way (basically music etc at home, and Outlook at work)

You can authorise up to 5 PC's for an iPod.You could install iTunes at work, if they do not mind, or copy the work stuff to removable storage and bring it home. In either event it would be best to set the preference to manually synch the stuff or you culd lose items off the i Pod if you leave it on auto.

thanks for that advice. I did install itunes and it seems to have worked fine for calendar & contacts. But not for mail. During synchronisation, itunes tells me it is synching email accounts, but there's nothing apparent on the ipod. Any suggestions?

Sorry, don't use iPod for mail etc, ; hope you find an answer.
