Hmm...so do you mean syncing other elements with desktop Outlook aside from just the inbox? Because yes, the Outlook sync on WP does that natively as well. So for example, Outlook calendar entries and tasks (and contacts) are automatically synced up to my phone now that I've connected it to my Outlook account. Now, a text reminder of that Outlook calendar entry automatically shows up on my lock screen the day of the entry, and I'll also receive a notification buzz/beep 15 minutes prior to the event. Also, if I make any changes to my desktop Outlook calendar, they will be reflected on my phone (and vice versa). Is that the sort of syncing you're referring to? EDIT: In case it wasn't implied, no part of this process involves plugging your phone into your computer, it's all handled automatically after you punch in your Outlook account info that one time. I feel the need to include this disclaimer because a lot of the Zune syncing nonsense often requires you to plug your phone into your computer.
