    I sync 2 PC's with my Treo 750. Machine 1 shows 1060 contacts and Machine 2 shows 918 contacts. My question is why aren't the contact lists equal since I'm syncing the same Treo between both machines?

    Because you can't sync contacts with more than one PC. Same with Calendar and Tasks. Lame, I know - PalmOS can do this.

    Chapura PocketMirror for WM claims to do this, and to some degree it does. But I had to return it for a refund because it could not cope with the "LiveMeeting Transport" my employer uses for setting up teleconferences. For some bizarre reason, the calendar entries it creates causes PM to abort.

    I suggest you assign one catagory too all of the contacts on one computer and a different catagory on all of the contacts on computer #2.

    Next I recommend that you get a hosted exchange server and import all of your contacts. Same usage much easier with more function and ease of sync.

    That doesn't make any sense to me... but I probably can do the host server!
    Thanks

    Sorry I was listening to a question in another post regarding work contacts and home contacts. They wanted to sync to seperate contact lists. My recommendation was 2 catagories [1 - home, 2 - work] and a hosted exchange server.

    Anyway in your case a relatively inexpensive charge per month gets you a hosted exchange server that holds duplicate info in all locations including mobile device. Add a contact at work and they sync to the device and home. Delete a cotact on the device and they are deleted at work and home. Its great.

    Since i already have a Domain and web site, it shouldn't be that difficult to do. Have you done this before, how can I do it without calling my IT people?

    I suggest that you use Plaxo so that all your contacts are kept in sync w/o your palm device. Plaxo works much the same and the add-on software for firefox that keeps all your bookmarks up to date on all machines. The difference is that if the contact is a plaxo member and they change their information, you don't have to update it yourself. I'm sold on plaxo and palm OS. Wish all my relatives and friends would use it.
