    Hello all

    We have a home network (wireless) consisting of a desktop & notebook. Both machines running Vista & Outlook Pro 2007. Currently have Outlook as the default email program on both machines & set up so that we receive our emails on both machines.

    What we would like to do is set up Outlook to update Contacts etc. on both machines simultaneously ie if I update Contacts on the desktop it is immediately visible on the notebook. Is it a matter of just the sharing the .pst file or do I need to do something else?

    I don't think it's possible to synchronise your contacts. But what you can do is create a public address book that you can access from both machines. Would that do the trick?

    If it can be created within Outlook itself it would probably do the trick. how do I go about doing that?

    Ummm just looking in to this some more and i have found out you can't have a public address book on your home network with out creating a domain and using an exchange server. and doing all that will cause you more problems then it's worth! Sorry about that.
