Sync Outlook 2000 with 2 user accounts, 2 PDA, in XP
I share a desktop with my wife, I have a different Windows XP (Home Ed) user account than her's, both accounts have full rights. She uses a Zire 21 and synchronises with Outlook 2000 using Chapura Pocket Mirror Standard Edition, 22.214.171.124 and I do the same with my Palm III. We do not share our pst files in Outlooks. Everything is working fine.
I am planning to buy new Tungsten E2 to replace my Palm III. Can I use the new Palm conduits on my side and keep the Chapura conduits for my wife ?

You have to set up an account, either a Microsoft or a local account. Microsoft accounts are online accounts. Local accounts are the traditional style of Windows user account. Your user account name and password are stored only on your computer. To use OneDrive, desktop settings sync, or other account-based features, you need a Microsoft account rather than a local user account. You can change your account choice later but you must set up one or the other.
How do you set up an account? By the ADD USER function. As I am the primary person using and configuring my computer, I make my account an administrators account.
Not so weird.
Imagine you are using Microsoft Outlook on one computer. To use Outlook to send and receive e-mail you must give it an E-mail address. Image that you and your wife use a single user account on the computer. For the computer there is only one user. Then you configure Outlook by creating an account (you must supply your e-mail address.) Someday or other your wife wants to use Outlook to receive and send E-mail. She must add a second account to Outlook.
I have no idea what you do not to read each other's email but when you want to send an E-mail Outlook has too use one of the two accounts (the outgoing mail server of one of the two addresses) to send the E-mail. Apparently your wife's account is the default one and all outgoing messages go through it. Before you press the send button, open the account list and select the one to use for sending.
On the following screen capture see the arrowhead. Open that menu. You will see all the accounts managed by Outlook listed there. One of them is marked as the default one.
You may not be using Outlook but that should not matter, Your E-mail client may behave similarly.
I have Outlook 2010 client on my PC. My ISP mail account is forwarded to Outlook via POP3 mail account. I also have a gmail account to which I forward all mail to from my ISP mail address. My gmail calendar is bi-directionally synchronised to my Outlook calendar using 'Google Calendar Sync' and likewise my gmail contacts are bi-directionally synchronised to my Outlook contacts using 'Go Contact Sync'. then it was a simple matter on my Windows Phone 7 to create a Google mail account to my gmail account. I can create contacts, calendar entries in either Outlook, Gmail or my phone and they are all sync'd with each other. 'Google Calendar Sync' and 'Go Contact Sync'' are free downloads.
You can sync to Outlook on the PC and then get the Outlook data onto
the iTouch. If you have a newer PDA, It's install CD has a Sync options menu item
where you can switch between Palm Desktop and Outlook. If you no longer
have the original install CD or have an older device Pocket, Copy from
Chapura.com It will move the Palm Desktop records to Outlook.

Here are two resource pages which hopefully will help. The first is Palm support page with an update to download for users of Outlook 2003. The second is a discussion thread of Treo users troubleshooting the same problem. Even if the PDA is different, the issue (and error code) is practically the same, Rather than cut and paste what I think is relevant, read the thread and see if one of the solutions listed helps you.
yes I moved my files to a new machine and reinstalled palm
(which of course also created the dreaded multiple copies of many palm contacts, when palm discovered older archives, but that is another story!) I wouldn't mind that if the palm pilot would just sync with outlook 2003. It synched with Outlook 2000 on my old machine.
