Basically I have looked for this for some time now. I hope it is not a duplicate. I have a PC at work and another PC at home. I don't want to keep outlook completely sync in both, but just the contacts and settings if possible. The former is much more important for me.

By contacts I mean: if I add a contact or a contact group at work, I need to see it at home.

By settings I mean: if I create a new category or tag at work, I need to see it at home.

Is there any free solution for this? Sharing a file in the cloud like dropbox, ubuntuone, etc

Something like Active Exchange works for something like this. – Ramhound Feb 8 '13 at 15:33
@Ramhound, Could you elaborate a bit more on that (Maybe a quick answer). Does it mean Microsoft exchange server? – rowman Feb 9 '13 at 21:22
I assumed since your using Outlook 2010 that you were using an Exchange on both ends. I know nothing about what is and is not possible in a situation like this. I just know that Active Exchange Sync allows you to sync contacts across multiple devices. – Ramhound Feb 10 '13 at 14:27
@Ramhound, OK thanks. Yes I am using Outlook 2010 but I am not using any Exchange at the moment. I will do some research on this. – rowman Feb 12 '13 at 9:02
What are you using if not Exchange? – Ramhound Feb 12 '13 at 12:19
