My boss has his Outlook configured so that he has a profile for work and home (needs to use a separate SMTP server for home).  However, he wants the same information (Contacts, Inbox, etc.) to come up in both locations.  Is there any way to accomplish this?

He has two profiles, meaning he logs on to each profile separately?  Then you can just point each profile to the same PST.  There's no possibility then of two users trying to access it at the same time.

OK, then let me ask a really dumb question - how do I point his Outlook profiles to the same .pst file?  He has only 1 profile on the computer, but he has 2 profiles in Outlook.

Go to Control Panel, Mail at his workstation with him logged in.  You should see two profiles, one for home and one for work. Click on the first one, click on properties, click on Data Files, click Add and point to the PST.

Do the same for the other one.

If you don't see two profiles, then he has an Outlook profile that accesses two mailboxes, in which case he should only need to point to the PST once.
