I have a desktop and a laptop computer, both running Windows XP SP3 and Office 2007.
Normally I use the desktop computer for email, but I would like to use the laptop computer for email when I'm away from home.
I can manage this by the following laborious steps:
1) Before I want to use the laptop machine, copy my entire Outlook.pst file from the desktop to the laptop.
2) Use the laptop machine exclusively for email.
3) When I'm done using the laptop machine for email, copy my entire Outlook.pst file from the laptop back to the desktop.
This procedure is, of course, absurd. There should be a way to consolidate the email messages on the two machines, much the way Microsoft's synctoy PowerTool lets me consolidate folders of ordinary files. A web search turns up some programs that claim to be able to do that. I don't mind paying a reasonable amount for such a program, provided that it works.
So: What's a good way to coordinate email between two machines?
