Exchange and outlook.pst in one profile + Activesync

At work, I need to access my Exchange 2007 mailbox AS WELL AS my personal outlook.pst which is Activesync-ed to my Windows Mobile 6 device.

In a nutshell, Exchange wants to deliver my work mail to my local outlook.pst inbox.  This isn’t so good because I need my mail safely stored and managed on the server so I can access it from OWA.

Alternatively, if I tell outlook that I want my exchange mail on the server, it then sets my work calendar, tasks & contacts as the default, breaking my ability to sync my personal data to my device.

Ideally, I would want to be able to open my personal calendar and work calendar side by side so I could drag important work events onto my personal calendar so it would be available on my portable device.

I tried creating a separate profile where my work exchange is my default inbox/calendar, and then did a file | open and browsed to my outlook.pst.  

That’s fine, but my concern is I don’t want to accidentally connect my device when at profile is open because I don’t want my work calendar/tasks/contacts to overwrite my personal ones, nor do I want them merged.

I’m really in a bind, and would love a magic solution.

Using outlook to access my personal PST and using OWA to access my work stuff is not idea because I’d like to use the full blown outlook client.

Am I asking too much?

Thanks in advance for any thoughts,
Mike

You can't mix and match. Either the content is on the server or on the PST file.
The only way that might do it is a third party utility, but I cannot think of one of the top of my head. The only thing that comes close that I can think of is add2exchange from diditbetter.com unless mapi labs have something.

Sure enough, you're right: can't mix & match.  Thanks for the help!
