I have an email account/address working through outlook (2007) on my pc (windows 7) – contacts and emails (work). I also have gmail accounts and gmail contacts (personal).
I want to be able to access the outlook emails and contacts from laptop and phone, but not to blend the contacts and mails. They should remain separate.
It is perfectly possible that i have setup IMAP wrongly. Emails received on my laptop stay on the laptop without showing up on the PC. But emails that I've picked up on the phone DO show up on the outlook screen of the pc. But I don't know how to access the outlook contacts on the android. I've imported them onto the laptop, but they don't update automatically.
My question is how to set up my business emails AND CONTACTS (I'm not committed to outlook, at all) so that I can access them from laptop and/or android phone, but keep them as separate entities (business v personal), while being able to see on desktop all the email exchanges etc that have been done on laptop/phone and vice versa – including any new contacts.
or should I dump outlook and use another programme - perhaps gmail itself?
