I need to synchronise my XDA mobile with Outlook 2007 on a home computer and an office computer (necessary because they are 300 miles apart). This is so that I can have the Calendat and Contacts always available. (I am not attempting to synchronise the inbox on either computer).
The office computer connects through a LAN to an Exchange server and I have successfully synchronised this with my XDA. The computer at home connects to the same server through a VPN on my wireless network. When I try to establish a synchronisation relationship with the home computer, it does not offer me the chance to select Contacts, or Calendar for Synchronisation. This means that I cannot synchronise my calendar when I am away from the office.
I believe that it may be because I am linking to the same server from both computers, but I'm not sure if the synchronisation will pick up the server information when I use the home machine. Could I simply set up a basic synchronisation and let the calendar and contacts be picked up directly from the server, rather than from the local copy? If I do, would I need to specify anything in particular in the set up Wizard? I don't want to try this if I might lose all the data that are already synchronised as I am away from the office machine for some time..
