Is there any way of telling my laptop that I am not connected to the network (and therefore don't try mapping drives or connecting to the Exchange server) when I am working from home. I know in outlook I can go to the bottom right of the screen and choose work offline but it takes ages to have this functionality available. I often use my calendar or draft messages at home so that they are sent when I get back to work.
Also at home I have had trouble connecting to the home network for file and print sharing - when I try and connect I get a message saying something like "This computer is part of a domain, unable to connect". Interestingly I am able to use the home internet ADSL connection. At work the computer is a member of a domain (SBS 2003) and at home there is just one PC that I want to have file and print sharing with.
Any help gratefully received.
