    I have a desktop computer and a laptop computer that are networked together.

    I run Microsoft Outlook 2003 on both computers, and I would like to share the data between the two.

    For example, is it possible to automatically have Microsoft Outlook 2003 synchronise elements such as the address book and e-mail messages? I am looking at a way to avoid having to manually update new contacts, etcetera, on both machines.

    More specifically...how can I have the "Data File" (".PST") automatically updated between the two machines?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Sharing a PST has never worked since it can only be used by one person at a time. There is really no way to do it natively in Outlook as it was never designed to do this. There are third party apps out there that can do what you want.
