I have a lap top, at the original install of outlook 2000, I created as a non-travel computer. Now I would like to change to as a travel computer.

Is there any easy way to do this??

I'm sorry, I have not idea what you are asking.  Can you be more specific?  Especially in how this relates to Outlook or Outlook Express?

I need to create the same folder from the server to a local drive and sync each time when the compute is shut down, this is so that I could work off-line.

Are we talking about an Exchange Server mailbox by chance?  If so are you trying to configure Outlook so that you can see the contents of your Exchange mailbox while you are not physically connected to the LAN?  Definitely doable and very easy.  Or do you need to be able to connect to the Exchange server while out of the office, and send/receive mail?  Maybe doable and more complex.

If not Exchange, what are we talking about?

Yes, Exchange. We are using Outlook 2000.

I want the user to have the same folder as it is on the network so that she can work off line. When she is on line...this should should also be sync wth the server (at any given minutes). With this I also need for her outlook to sync when outlook is shutting down so that she'll have the latest email, contact, appointment....

Can this be done???
