synchronise outlook and my docs between desktop and laptop

Hello,
I have a user with a desktop and laptop machine and they currently connect to a small business server 2003.  Each machine is setup as a different user on a different machine.
They would like the laptop and desktop to share the same outlook data so that whatever they do on either the laptop or desktop the data is synchronised between the two machines.
Also what would the best way to synchronise their My Documents folders so they share the same contents.
Can somebody suggest the best way to achieve this.
Thank you for reading this post and considering your reply.

For the documents you could use the Breifcase

I had looked at the slipstick page but it seemed that I needed a third party module to synch the data and I thought that Exchange Server might have its own built in option.  Looks like the best option is to set up the folders correctly or use something like Add2Exchange.
Confirm my initial research nad thoughts.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

This is not necessary. Assuming the desktop is in the office they can connect and use Exchange. Then when out of the office with the laptop they can connect and use Offline Floders (*.OST).
