It is inconsistent. Sometimes the number of emails is different on my laptop and my desktop. If it does sync, it takes a long time.

I was using Outlook 2003 on the laptop and Outlook 2007 on the desktop. I thought that might be the problem so I recently had the laptop upgraded to Outlook 2007. I am using Outlook Connector 14.0.4760.1000 on the laptop and Outlook Connector 12.0.6423.1000 on the desktop.

Eventually the two mail files do sync up. I have never timed it but it seems that on occasion it might have taken a couple of hours. And doing a send/receive does not force a sync. If I delete the Hotmail account and then re-install it, it seems to take a fresh copy of the inbox and it is current and in sync, but it does not make sense to do that regularly.

Does anybody have an answer to this. Does Microsoft Support monitor these posts? I cannot explain why there would be three different versions of my inbox. There seems to be a real problem with Outlook Connector and an issue with quality control.
