Ok this seems like such a simple idea..

My wife has outlook 2003 ruinning on Vista
I have outlook 2003 running on XP

We would like to to be able to use the same contacts list.

I understand it is not simply a question of pointing at the same PST file. I believe I could go out and spend a small fortune on buying Exchnage server but I would struggle to set it up. We both use SMPT / POP3 with www.ukgatway.net

Ultimately I would like for eiteher of us to be able use our laptops on other people's neworks when we travel but to still be able to use email. And when we are together at home again our laptops would be able update the master contact list in some way?

It sounds simple enough but seems really to hard to do? Any ideas geeksters?

Its not really practical, you'd be better off storing the local list on each computer separately and on occasion manually adding/removing the contacts on a per machine basis.

Exchange server is well overkill for what you want, whereas you can do the same job, say, once a month on each machine.
