I would consider the hosted exchange that bakedjake mentioned. I pretty much gave up on trying to sync outlook.
What I do is to have my netbook set to not delete messages from the server. My laptop (main machine) is set to delete messages after 7 days. WHen I travel, or periodically, I copy the PST from the laptop to the netbook. That is in no way ideal, especially if you want to track your sent messages from the non-main machine.
My experience with the hosted exchange was for a client. The support from the hosted exchange was a bit spotty. However, it was what they needed.
With this economy, I am trying to keep costs contained, so I'll kludge along.
