Default Non-Flash: How can I share my emails accross two PCs?

Probem: I recently got a cheap laptop to use while I'm on the go. I'd like to be able to synchrnize my emails between Outlook on my dekstop and Outlook on my laptop. Anyone know how I can do that?
Failing doing it with Outlook, anyone got any other suggestions for software to use?

Maybe this won't help that much...

This is what I did... I have set up the Outlook not to delete the email from the server on my work computer... When I get home, I have the Outlook Express get all the emails from the server and get them deleted so that I won't get them again next day when I go to work...

Another one... I have two computers at home both with Outlook Express... I do the manual copy and paste of the data files in Outlook Exress directory under the Documents and Settings directory... Kinda bad idea, but it did the job, so I didn't mind...

BTW, did you check out this thread??? Love to hear from you...

Default easy solution

hey jesse
i had to do that too for a while before i sold my laptop for another guitar - used a simple program called QSync:
QSynch
hope this helps

more info:
micro$oft knowledge base

solution i found a while ago but haven't tried:
Quote:
Windows Briefcase This solution comes from F.E. Froelich:
I think I have found a relatively painless way to share Microsoft Outlook between my laptop, which I travel with, and my desktop without having to connect the two computers together.

I created a directory for the two Outlook files Mailbox.pab and Mailbox.pst. I then copied the directory into My Briefcase. I then placed My Briefcase onto a disk. (I have a Zip drive on both computers, so I keep a Zip disk with nothing but My Briefcase on it for sharing files between my laptop and desktop.) I then deleted the Mailbox.pab and Mailbox.pst files from my laptop and copied the two files from My Briefcase into a directory on the laptop.

When I am ready to leave with the laptop, I put the My Briefcase Zip disk into the desktop and update the files, then put the same disk into my laptop and update. When I come back, I reverse the sequence. So far it seems to work.

As an aside, I have copied the entire My Documents directory into My Briefcase on the same Zip disk. Now all of my Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and Access files are kept up to date between the two computers. When I create a new file or subdirectory on one computer, it is automatically added to the other computer the next time I do an update. This approach is much more efficient than trying to make sure that I have placed all of the individual files that I need into My Briefcase. There is no better way to manage My Briefcase than with a Zip drive (unless you have a LAN).

Note that the file names may differ on your machine. See Outlook & Exchange/Windows Messaging Backup and Dual-Boot for default names and locations.

Windows 2000 (and later) offer a feature for taking files offline, but by default, it excludes Personal Folders .pst files. However, you can edit the system policy that controls the file types so that .pst files can be included. See Error Message Files of This Type Cannot Be Made Available Offline.

I think it's not the proper sloution, the ZIP drives are ver slowly and the emails never get smaller
