I backup my PC's Outlook folder to a backup file with each days date.  I import this data to my lapptop but I do not get the same Outlook Today settings from my desktop.

What am I doing wrong?  and is there a better way to sync these two machines?

The data is contained in the PST file, but not your settings.  This is from an article for Outlook 2000 Internet Mail Only mode that describes files that do:



Backing Up Outlook Settings Files
---------------------------------

If you have customized settings which you want to replicate on another computer
using Outlook, you may wish to include the following files in your back as well
as the Personal Folders file:

 - Outcmd.dat - This file stores toolbar and menu settings.

 - <Profile Name>.fav - This is your Favorites file that includes the
   settings for the Outlook bar.

 - <Profile Name>.htm - This file stores the HTML AutoSignature.

 - <Profile Name>.rtf - This file stores the Rich Text Format
   AutoSignature.

 - <Profile Name>.txt - This file stores the Plain Text format
   AutoSignature.

NOTE: If you use Word as your e-mail editor, signatures are stored in the
Normal.dot as Autotext entries. This file should be backed up as well.
Custom views are integrated to the folders on which they were created. If you
export items from one Personal Folder to another, the views are not maintained.

NOTE: The Personal Folders Backup Utility mentioned earlier does not back up
these settings files.
