Outlook w/o server

I'm starting a small consulting company.  Got a new laptop with the latest software on it.

From my corporate life days, I am comfortable using Outlook (not OE) for my mail/calendar/contacts, and would like to use Outlook (not OE) as my client for my new, non-corporate, no-server, life.

I plan to use GMAIL for email, and set up the POP settings in Outlook to automatically retreive GMAIL

The Question:  If I get meeting invites from corporate Outlook or Lotus users, will my Outlook (client only, no server) populate my client calendar and will I have all of the calendar functions that I had when Outlook runs on a server??  Will my invites appear correctly on the corporate mail systems?

Basically, can I continue to use Outlook (not OE) with the same functionality I'm used to?

Yes...  just backup your mailbox information before you disconnect.

and before that disconnect happens, save/backup your .pst files to a place that you can locate them when you create a new Oultlook user.

Greetings, joemz !

Your emails and contacts will be stoed in PST file instead of on the Exchange server.

>>Will my invites appear correctly on the corporate mail systems?

You can use your calendar and invite others to meeting.  But I am not sure if your invites will appear in their calendar in corporate mail systems.  It depends on how they handle your invitation.


Best wishes!
