    Laptop on Wireless Network (OL 2007)

    I have a Laptop on a wireless network at home. It is connected to the various hard drives on the Desktop in my study and an external hard drive as well.
    I have a problem with she who must be obeyed who insists on playing patience on Desktop Computer, when I want to retrieve e-mails. Am sure this forum does not wish to become embroiled in this purely domestic issue. It would not be pretty.
    However...
    Can I point Laptop Outlook to .pst file on desktop. Is this wise? Is there a better way?

    No, I do NOT think it is wise.
    Does your email provider provide "Internet" access to your email account?
    This would be the best way, other that buying "who must be obeyed " her OWN desktop, with a "Wired" connection to the router.
    WE did LONG time ago had have NOT had any issues with using "HER" machine when she needs it. <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Thanks Dave, I suspected as much. Yes my ISP does have Webmail. But it does not have a lot of Outlook's functionality. I was hoping that just pointing to the .psp file on the Desktop would work OK, but was reluctant to try this until seeking advice. Do you know of any Outlook sync programs that might solve my problem?
