Assigning a hotkey in Outlook

Hi,

We just converted from Novell Groupwise to Outlook at my workplace. We are forced to work offline and must synchronize with our main server in Chicago each time I need to send or receive email. One of the features outlook has is to assign specific folders to be synchronized ... which I have done. i only want my Inbox and Outbox to be done on a regular basis... I can synch the remaining folders once or twice a day.
From the TOOLS/SYNCHRONIZE drop down menu I now have a choice to select the In/Out folder I created.
Instead of using the Tool drop down I would like to assign a hotkey to that function. I've looked over my Outlook "inside out" book and didnt find any reference to this.
Can anyone help ?

If your company is anything like mine 3rd Party Software is a no no. Here is how do do it using VBA.

This code goes in the 'ThisOutlookSession' module.

Dim colSyncObjects As Outlook.SyncObjects                '<-- These two lines at the very top
Dim WithEvents objSyncObject As Outlook.SyncObject  '<--

Sub StartSync()
   Set colSyncObjects = Session.SyncObjects
   Set objSyncObject = colSyncObjects("Sync Object Name")
   objSyncObject.Start
End Sub

I got this off of a microsoft article. They had another way of doing it also but I couldn't get it to work, but maybe you can:
