Marvin,   Thank you, everything is making sense.    Just for clarity on the last item about working on a word doc for example between a PC and Mac.  Lets say I saved my "working" files in dropbox.  I work on a word doc no my PC, its saved in dropbox, 5 mins later I work on it on may Mac, saved again in dropbox - back forth till the end of time.  Do you foresee this word doc becoming corrupt?  (This is just an example)   Thanks again

Hello.  I bought a Mac Air yesterday primarily for work proposes.  I installed Office 2011 and entered exchange data into Outlook and the Mac did a great job with auto discover and setting up my email and downloading it and my folders.   MY work is all PC.   My problem: When I modify my email on my MAC, say delete an item or move it to a folder, it does not update my outlook on my work PC (or work webmail). It is almost as if it is only modifying it locally...
