Sync outlook data across my laptop and my desktop
Posted on 2004-11-15
There has to be a way of doing this, but I can't quite figure it out ...
I want to sync outlook data across my laptop and my desktop so there is always one totally up to date Outlook. I run XP Pro with SP2 and Office 2003 on both.
I have a wireless network at home and normally work at my desktop. However, when I am working away from home, which is very regular, at the moment I have to operate two Outlook data files. What I IDEALLY want to do is to syncronise the files so that when I leave home I have all the Outlook mail and contacts and appointments on my laptop. Then, I send/recieve and amend contacts and appointments while I away knowing that when I return home I can easily sync back to the desktop (which has been switched off while I am away). I guess this is an easy thing to do, but how ... HELP!!!! Maybe there is some network sync system built into XP or Outlook??
I don't have Exchange by the way and don't want to buy it for such a small home/office set up. Maybe I just need to copy and paste a file across the two computers or something!!! Dunno ...
Thanks a lot :-)
