Hi Medo,

As far as I know this is not a built-in feature of Outlook. There are 3rd party addins available like Easy2Sync For Outlook. Haven't tried it myself but it has gotten pretty good reviews.

Hi Medo,

If you have set up Outlook correctly on your laptop then the most likely thing is that you are using pop3 email with Outlook set to delete messages from the server after downloading them onto your computer. This been the case, when you log into your email with your laptop the messages have already been downloaded and deleted by your computer so they are no longer there to be downloaded onto your laptop.

There are 2 ways to resolve this

Set up Outlook to leave a copy of messages on the server for a set time say 14 days. This will give you time to download emails onto each device before they are removed from the server.

Or

you could set Outlook to only delete the emails from the server when they are deleted from deleted items. Depending on how many emails you get and how much space your ISP gives you for emails this may be the best solution.

In Outlook 2010

  1. Click the File tab > Account Settings
  2. Click on account settings again
  3. Highlight your email account by clicking on it
  4. Click change > More settings > Advanced tab
  5. In the Delivery section check the box "Leave a copy of message on the server."
  6. Adjust the number of days that you need mail to be left on the server
  7. Or check the box “Remove from server when deleted from Deleted items”.
  8. Click OK > Next and Finish.

Whichever solution you choose, you will need to make sure that Outlook is set up the same way on your laptop as well otherwise you could find outlook on your laptop deleting messages before you get them onto your computer.

      A feature I use all the time in Microsoft Outlook 2013 (Office 2013) is the ability to open a calendar invite during a meeting and click - Meeting Notes. See screenshot from Outlook 2013.
       
      [attachment=0]outlook-2016.jpg[/attachment]
       
      After installing Office 2016, when I open up outlook I no longer have that option in the calendar. It's just missing.
       
      Is anyone else having this issue or is it just me?
       
      Hopefully this is just an issue with the Preview and it will get fixed later during full release.

      I have tried other Forums and no one seems to have a fix for this, but I just keep on trying.
       
      I am having an issue with the “Junk” filter in Microsoft Office Outlook 2010. I am unable to stop some email from being filtered and moved to the “Junk” filter. My mail is filtered prior to my getting it, so I WANT IT COMPLETELY OFF! I went to the Junk drop down on the Home menu bar and selected Junk E-mail Options. I click on the lowest setting being . . . No Automatic Filtering. Mail from blocked senders is still moved to the Junk E-mail Folder. And I have no one listed in the Block Senders list, so that should mean, nothing is filtered. But, a small portion of my e-mail still ends up there. Ahhh – I and can’t stop it.

      I am using Outlook 2003.I have huge numbers of .pst files . I want to manage Outlook by dividing PST files by Folder. But i don't want to compact files.

      Question from Reader - Email Form
       
       
      Hi Tom,
       
      Ouch. I know how it feels losing a days worth of work. The worst part is when you have to recreate what you've already done.
       
      To answer your question, when you found the Entry "OutlookSecureTempFolder" what was the path in the DATA column? I assume you reviewed this post here to find it. It looks like you found the registry key entry so your more than 1/2 way there. Find that key again and you should have the path to your OLK folder and your Excel should be sitting there.
       
      Now the path might be a bit confusing because with Outlook 2007, there actually is "NOT" an OLK folder. For instance, on my XP/Outlook 2007 install, my OLK folder or "Temp Outlook Folder" / "OutlookSecureTempFolder" is:
       
      "c:\Documents and Settings\mrgroove\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook\4V32TZLP"
       
      So if you look on your box you will find what your looking for in the "Content.Outlook" folder. Take a look there and your golden.
       
      Let me know how this works for you!

      Hey Mr Groove! Love the site and really enjoyed your last article!
       
      I have an idea for a new article on groovypost for you! You need to write something on all the different search syntax that can be used in outlook 2007!
       
      I only use a few of the features but would love to get the inside scoop.
