September 14th, 2005, 03:05 PM #1Synchronizing Outlook Express on laptop and PC
I am looking for a program that will allow me to synchronize my outlook express emails and my documents files on my laptop and PC
I receive hundreds of emails a day and when I get them downloaded on the pc, I cannot get them using my laptop.
Any good programs out there I can use?

If you have pop3 chances are you can use IMAP
IMAP will leave the email on the server so that you can download it on both your laptop and PC
Only downside if you delete something in your inbox on either pc or laptop it remains in the inbox just puts a slash through it.
You can also set your pop3 to leave the email on the server and set it to delete it after lets say 10 days or so. You can do that in your mail set up in outlook.
As for the document files. Just set up a shared folder on your laptop since I assume you take your laptop places and create a shortcut on your desktop to that shared folder. You have to set up networking for that to work correctly though.

You can also try to write a batch file to copy all the files you need.
A second and probably better option is to get a USB pen drive and change your store folder in OE to point at the pen drive. You can then do the same with your my documents folder. Just right click on it and you will see where to make the change. You have to make the settings changes on both the laptop and the PC.
I do this for work and my home PC
Let me know if you have any questions.

What I did for Outlook was to share my Outlook directory, where the .pst file is located on my PC. Then I seutp Outlook on my laptop to use the same .pst file that is located on my shared directory on my PC. The problem with this method though is when you travel, you have to copy the .pst file to your local laptop directory or your email won't work. When you get back home you have to copy the file back to your PC and change your Outlook settings to use that file again. I don't travel much so this works ok for me.

Are there any good online services that allow you to set up Pop3 account access from any computer? I am looking at the same issue, and would like to have an online solution.

I do my email only on my laptop, and then use a docking port to the desktop with a KVM switch. I get the feel of the desktop environment, but everything stays on just the laptop, so it is handy when I am out of the office using it.Ron Bechdolt | Affiliate Program Management Consultant

Try mail2web.com it is free. My wife uses it to access her e-mail at the office.
