syncronise outlook accross 2 network pc's

  silliw 17:43 28 Oct 2006

I mainly use my laptop wirelessly on the network to surf and do bits and pieces. I use Outlook for email and sometimes collect mail on my laptop. I also have a desktop machine for more specific work,video editing and my database work. Again I sometimes collect ail on this too. Is there a means by which I can allign my inboxes and calendars accross the two machines?

Yes, use a synchronisation program such as "AllWay Sync" and sync Outlook's .PST file between the two computers.

thanks mgmcc

I was thinking more of a way that I could do this over the network obviously while both machines are on. I have a pda and could if needed Sync between the three devices but it is time consuming and as I only have one cradle I would have to move this between the two machines.

AllWay Sync would be run over the network with both computers running. Install it in your main PC and set up a "job" in which you enter the path to the .PST file in the main PC and then the network path to the .PST file in the remote PC. Obviously the folder containing the .PST file in the remote PC must be set as "shared", so that it is accessible over the network.

I have set up this exact arrangement for a one-man business in which he 'syncs' his main PC's Outlook file each evening with a second "backup" PC and with his laptop.
