    I have been asked an interesting question,

    Can you sync your Iphone with 2 PC's

    1 Home PC for music and apps

    2 Office PC for your Outlook 2007 Contacts and emails (windows 7)

    Thanks in advance

    I'd suggest looking for ways to sync your e-mail over the air without involving the work computer at all.

    I don't know how your work e-mail is set up, though, so I can't say HOW to do that. But that's what you should be investigating by asking whoever is in charge of tech at your office.

    Nope. only one PC. Use Exchange to sync your work email and contacts.

    Yes, Exchange gives you a number of options. If the OP's organization hasn't made ActiveSync available via the Internet then it might be internally (via wi-fi or a cable). Or Outlook Anywhere to give your work stuff at home on a local copy of Outlook. Good advice from SWC to check with your IT dept.

    A workaround would be to export your contacts and import them into the iPhone which would be some work to manage if there's a lot of churn.

    Lotus Notes v8.5.1 is supposed to have ActiveSync but we used a third party product to sync ( But again, it must be published somehows.

    What I have to do is not ideal because work won't allow me exchange access but some info:

    Calendar; use google calendar sync and use google calendar on the phone

    Mail; sunk, can't do it by corporate decree. Only way is exchange access.

    Contacts; make a new outlook pst file and copy all contacts to that file. Move that file to the computer with itunes sync to the phone and load those contacts into outlook. In itunes synch outlook contacts.

    I sync mine with my Mac at home and use exchange for my work e-mail. It also imports my calendars and my global work contact list too which is nice.
