I don't mean to use of valuable server space with a question that has probably already been covered,

but I'm have a little trouble getting an overall perspective.

So here it goes:

I'm using Outlook 2010.

I currently use it on two PCs, a Desktop and a Laptop (the laptop is a Mac using Bootcamp).

I have 3 @Live.com email address' that I access in Outlook.

My wife has 1 @Live.com email address that I access the calendar for in Outlook.

My wife access her @Live.com email address using live.com,

but she also has Entourage (Mac).

What I would like to be able to do:

Access my 3 email address'.

Access my the calendar for my wife's email address, but not her email.

Sync Outlook between the 2 computers I use.

The second question is what I should do with the *.ost *.pst protocol.

Currently each email address has it's own *.ost file, but of course these are not synced between the computers.

And finally, I have a BlackBerry Bold 9650 which I sync.

I'm only including this information in case it changes some of the considerations.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

To sync live accounts in Outlook, you need to use the Outlook Hotmail Connector. Your wife can share her calendar with one of your live accounts but I'll need to double check on how that works in Outlook. (The original connector from 9 years ago synced shared calendars.)

OST = offline store. The data in the accounts online are synced to the ost and changes sync back up to the server. You son't do anything - outlook creates the appropriate type of data file for your account. PST is a local store and used for archiving or with POP3 accounts.

The bold doesn't really have an effect on things, unless its messing up the calendars.

Thank-you for the reply Diane!

Now if my wife were to share a calendar, would it be possible to share it in such a way that I would be able to edit events on the calendar as well?

Thank-you, and Happy Holidays!

It depends on how you share it. These are both Hotmail accounts, correct? I'll check the settings to see how its done.
