Please pardon my noob stupidity here.

I have (2) "hotmail" (that have been migrated to the new outlook.com) and one outlook.com account.

What I'd like to do (and I think it's possible, I'm just not sure how I should do this):

Install Outlook 2016 32-bit on my 3 pc's (two laptops and one desktop). Although I do occasionally use my Outlook.com or whatever iphone App.

I want to make sure that the inbox and sent items (I don't care about calendar or trash, really, but if trash is there, that's a nice thing) are synchronized on all 3 pc's. I don't mean synchronize like the process that Outlook 2016 "syncs" (fetches and sends) your email to the Outlook.com servers.

I mean how are the .PST files (or their contents) kept in sync among 3 different devices.

It sounds like it's doable if you setup your email account in Outlook as an "outlook.com" account.

Is this all there is? Am I explaining myself correctly?

Thank you all very much!

Yes, that is all there is to it. :) If you have the outlook.com accounts set up in Outlook as Microsoft Exchange accounts (default when using auto account setup), each account is stored in an ost (offline file), not a pst, and syncs all folders with the server - the computers will all be identical - categories, views, rules - everything that is stored in the mailbox will be accessible on all of your computers.
