Synchronising Outlook: option not there?

  Handy Spinner 17:02 04 Jul 2005

Hi all,

I need to set up a laptop with a desktop computer to synchronise Outlook 2000. I was reading some of the old threads on this matter, and read this tutorial:

However...I can't see the option "Synchronize Other Computer" at all here! As far as I know, the version installed is simply Office 2000 Pro, non-corporate, networked, or anything like that.

Can anyone help, perhaps by telling me how to work Outlook, or by alerting me to a (preferably free) alternative?

Many thanks,

Watch out for duplicates

I suspect that the option isn't available. click here for a paid for prog that claims to do what you need. If there was an inbuilt function I can't imagine a paid for prog selling one copy! Hope it helps. db.

I think that you need to be using Microsoft Exchange with Outlook for this option to be available.

What exactly do you mean by "watch out for duplicates"?

Thanks for all your help.

You have a number of options when you Import, I can't remember which one I hit, but I found that I had duplicate entries all over the place.

Maybe I should have read the instructions first. Once you've mastered it, the system of Exporting from one PC and Importing to another PC works well.
