I have a laptop and a desktop, both running Outlook 98.  I would like to keep Calendar and Contacts synchronized.  Which files do I need to copy to synchronize calendar and contacts, and which folder are they in?  I know about the Import/Export utility, but I don't want to do it that way.  I want to be able to drag the contacts file (for instance) from the laptop to the desktop (I'm running a peer network.)

The only way would be to copy your PST files from the one computer to the other.  This however, will copy EVERYTHING from one computer to the other.  This includes mail, contacts, journal, etc...  It sounds like import, export is your best option.

what you could do is to use my briefcase and then sychronise the important files?

You can use Net Folders to Synchronize your Contacts, Calendar, and Tasks between two machines through e-mail, and or via e-mail through a post office. To Install net-folders go into add/remove programs and click add/remove on Outlook 98, then click add new components and click net folders. Then when in outlook just click on the folder you want to share go up to the file menu and go down to share. An e-mail will be sent to whoever you specify every time you update your contacts/calendar/tasks and is processed automatically. The only other way is an Exchange Server.

I use a product called synch pst, use google to find the vendor, its a German company. You can select which bits of Outlook to synch. Works well
