iPhone, iTunes, sync Outlook contacts over network

I have an iPhone 3g, iTunes installed on Windows, and I need to sync my Outlook contacts which live on a different machine. Is there a way to set the file location which iTunes/iPhone looks for to something other than the default system location? The other machine is Windows Server 2003.

Do you have Exchange? Then setup Active Sync and sync with Outlook. Most straight forward way to do it.

No Exchange. We WILL have it in a couple months, but it's not set up yet. What I have done since I posted is to download a trial version of Outlook, set it up, navigate to the network .pst for it's data file, and then the iPhone synced up. I need to test and see if it will sync data even though I don't open the trial version. I will post back when I know.

So far this appears to be working. However, all the email rules that were set up in the 2003 Outlook are gone. From a kb that I read, this can happen when accessing a .pst from different versions of Outlook. Bummer.
