Can someone please tell me how big companies synchronise their emails and files on several pcs?

By paying someone else to do it for them i would guess.

i need to know exactly what they use and how

I would think they have a main pc server set up and all the rest of the pc's linked to it.But i could'nt say exactly how they do it or what software they use to do it,they could all use different software and setups.

As far as I know the files and e-mails reside on servers and the individual PCs access the files on the servers. For those with laptops who are not always in the office they can synchronise e-mail using their e-mail software and files using synchronisation software - I use SynchToy click here but there are lots of other programs to do this.

Most companies have all their files held on a server and the individual PC's access their files there. On my work laptop the "My Documents" folder points to a remote location on a server.

A lot of companies usually have a Microsoft Exchange Server which holds all the emails and individual PC's use Outlook to download emails from that server
