I have Microsoft Outloook on my laptop which I use both professionally and personally for calendar, contacts, etc. At my job, I connect up to the network via a LAN, at home through a modem. The way I have outlook set up I can choose to connect to the network or work offline.
My problem is this: After the machine has been off, I cannot access a local copy of my directory, calendar, or email files. I must connect to the server first before my files seem to be avalaible. After this connection, I seem to have a local copy again.
I don't always have the ability to call in, so am out of luck in these situations.
How can I set up a relaible local copy? (Please don't invlove me in any reinstalls of the product, I did that once and the machine sychroized my existing files right out of existance).
