ACT and OUTLOOK and 2 computers

I have 3 named users working on 3 computers in one office.  We travel to a second office and the same three users work on 3 other computers.  We sync the main db.  Satelite office uses a remote DB.  We are using gmail so that we can access email at both offices, but we are losing the functionality of using Outlook with its integration with ACT. Is there a recommended way to synchronize the Outlook on the main and remote computers so that each named user can access their emails through Outlook at either office?

Re: ACT and OUTLOOK and 2 computers

Your gmail is a POP3 Account and as you know doesn't synchronize.  You have a few choices.  1) move your email from a POP3 to a hosted Exchange which does synchronize.  3) set up an environment where you can remote into the machines in Office 1 and use ACT and outlook remotely.  or 3) Have both ACT and Outlook Hosted so you can access this system from anywhere.  (we host ACT over Citrix which could provide this option)
