I have a client that has 2 laptops, one has Windows 7 pro with Outlook 2007 the other Windows 8.1 with Outlook 2013. She uses a Gmail e-mail account and wants both computers to sync with the web based software so that all e-mail, contacts etc. are the same on both computers. Both versions of Outlook are setup with IMAP and work fine sending and receiving. Although the 2007 version has a PST file and the 2013 has an OST file.

I would appreciate some help on this.

Thanks

Here are detailed instructions on how to set both accounts so they are synched up:

even thought the instructions are for Outlook 2010 it should work on 2007 and 2013

It is recommended to use IMAP to synchronize email across multiple machines and devices:
The instructions are at the bottom of the link above or here:
