- OT: IT Dullness – Auto Synch Outlook on Multiple PC's
Is it external email? If so, can you use IMAP? That will synch the folders and each one will receive the emails…
If it's internal, not entirely sure…save the .PST file on the server so thay all have access to it (might need to set it for multiple access) and try from there…Posted 7 years agostumpyjonSubscriber
The way I've got around this is use an archive PST file on my server (desktop PC). I've then set all the laptops up so that they move all the emails automatically to the 'inbox' folder in the archive file. Works OK.
Downside is only one person can have the archive file open at the same time. If the server is off, Outlook can't find the archive and the move rule crashes and switched itself off.Posted 7 years agoPaulGillespieMember
Lots of utilities that will do it. I've never used any as I generally work in environments where pop boxes aren't used but i've seen loads of articles saying it can be done.
You could also try a hosted exchange mailbox if it is for business use, or you're willing to pay the monthly charge.Posted 7 years ago
Thanks chaps. This is for a home set up where I flit between 3 machines. I don't need to access the PST simultaneously, I just need it to synch periodically so each machine has contemporary data. It's for use with an existing email account that's in wide use so I don't really want to go the web/hosted/gmail route.

For all mails from now simply set Outlook on each machine to pick up mail from the existing account so everything will be replicated on each machine. As long as you configure Outlook to not delete inbox messages on the server this will work fine. Also set up identical archiving on each machine
For mails in the existing PST files, simply copy the PST files to each machine then move the mails to your existing PST.
This will duplicate everything so not actually synced, but easy, quick and freePosted 7 years ago
