I am using Office 2007. I have set it up on my laptop but if I receive my outlook messages first on my laptop, they don't appear in my PC inbox.

Does anybody know how I can synchronise my pc inbox with my laptop inbox so all my emails appear on both computers?

Many thanks.

On your laptop, go into Tools and select Accounts. Doubleclick on the email account. On the next screen, you'll see a button for Advanced settings. When you click on that, you'll have a box pop up with tabs across the top. Click on the advanced tab - this should give you server settings. You'll have a checkbox that says "leave messages on the server". Check that, and choose how many days you want to leave them for. You should also have an option to delete them when they're deleted from the deleted items folder - you can check that as well. Save you settings and close and re-open Outlook.

Thanks very much!

So everytime I access the email account via POP it will download all the emails, no matter which computer I use?

Yes - I've done this for myself and some of my users who check emails from multiple locations. You may have to change the settings on your desktop as well, to make sure you get all the mails to your laptop as well.

I am having the same problem, and that fix is not working. Also can I set up my calender so that both computers can acces it and make changes?

You could also set up an email server on your desktop and then set your laptop, and desktop to get the emails from there. Burrotech has a free one called Office Mail. This, to me, is a much preferred solution, as you have more control over your email. Office Mail is very easy to configure and works very well.
