    Hello,

    I am currently using a POP3 email account and I would like to be able to access emails and also share calendar, contacts and tasks between MS Outlook on a Windows XP and Entourage on OS X. I have not been able to find a way to read the same email on both computers.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers

    What you are talking about cannot be done using a POP3 account. It is, however, done every second of every day via Microsoft's Exchange server. It is just that the Exchange server must allow access from Entourage.

    Ohh crap. How about if I use some of Google's services (Calendar, Contacts)?

    You are getting colder. If you enable IMAP rather than POP3 in Gmail, then you may keep your messages synchronized. However, IMAP is not a calendaring or contact manager standard. I am aware of no way to synchronize Gmail's contact list and calendars with Outlook, Entourage, or any other contact manager or calendaring application.
