Outlook with 2 Pc's

Hi

I have two computers, one desktop which is hardwired to my router and a laptop that connects wirelessly. I would like to be able to synchronise my PN email accounts on both of these computers so I have access to the same information on both

Could anyone suggest a method of doing this?

Thanks

I dont use outlook but what is the problem excatly...?
if you have your PN account entered into both pcs then they will both receive the same emails as long as your there not set to delete from server when received :?

use IMAP not pop3 and set it so that when it gets emails it does not delete them from the server. That will show you all the email on both computers.

The problem was that once my desktop had got in first with downloading email from the server in the morning , I cound not then sit out in the garden and reply to them on my laptop in the afternoon!

But if you say, l select to 'leave a copy on the server' will that mean that both computers get a full set of email? .

Thanks

yes, IMAP doesnt take the email of the plusnet server, you were propably using POP3 which does. This means that with IMAP it just copes the email to the computer you check them wtih, thus if you check them on a diff PC -- the email will still be visable.

a bit of reading for ya:

Have a look at this link which explains how to synchronize between two machines.

However from experience it only works if you are using the matching office suite - the whole thing fails miserably if you try to use Outlook 2003 with Office 97 like me
