    This depends on how you have Outlook configured.

    If you have Exchange, everything will sync automatically on the Exchange server. All you need to do here is make sure that both of your Outlook's point to the same mailbox on the same server.

    If you are using "internet mail" (ie/ POP3), then your best bet is to locate the PST file in a location that is easily accessible by both computers, then tell each copy of Outlook to point to that location. The drawbacks with this are the possibility of duplicate messages (if you set both copies of Outlook to retrieve mail; and also you will only be able to use one copy of Outlook at a time, due to file-locking.
