I have done this. There are a couple of ways...
The simplest is to do as the first responds suggested and under services set
the default delivery location to the mailbox (that is the exchange server
mail box). You will have to then move all the files from any personal
folders to the mailbox (after a restart of outlook creates the right
folders). Then everything for that user will stay on the server and as a
bonus, you set the laptop up for travel and it will keep a copy local as
well and update it when it is connected to the server. There are two other
bonuses of setting it this way. One is that you will have the same mail on
both computers and when you delete one, it goes away from the other...etc.
The other is that mail delivery is actually sped up on both computers. By
default Exchange drops the mail into that mailbox. Normally Outlook will
have to see that there is a message there and then move it to the delivery
location. Instead if you are looking at that mailbox, there is no delay for
the move so mail is delivered at least a second or two faster.
One more bonus for the Network Administrators out there. You have the
ability as an admin to open other users inboxes. For us this allows me to
check the messages for the President (or anyone else) when they are away
traveling and let them know of anything important. There may be a privacy
issue, but a statement declaring email company property clears that up. The
other thing is, if it is not abused, users will start to trust you and ask
you to check out an attachment before they open it...if you are real lucky.
Anyway, I am using just this strategy for the President of our company and
his new laptop.
Hope this is some help.

You can store the profiles on the server. You can change the default
destination (under Services) from the personal folders to Mailbox -
username. This will store everything on the server and whatever is done on
will is instantly reflected on the other. The notebook can then create
offline folders for storing information while not connected to the network.

Eric,

Normally outlook or any email based program, the server gathers the email
and distributes it to the workstation. The workstation will then 'hold' the
messages locally. To sync the same email on multiple machines, the email
needs to be 'held' at the server level and then when the users logs in it
will check the server for email. I have documentation somewhere on how to
do this on a NT4 network using outlook express, give me a bit to track it
down and I will forward it to you.

Find the *.pst file associated with that incidence of Outlook, then copy
that *.pst to the lap top. Alternatively, go to FILE then IMPORT/EXPORT.
I like using the *.pst because it brings everything with it. Also when I
set up OUTLOOK on a workstation I make sure that *.pst file(s) are created
on the server for backup purposes. That way if an individual workstation
crashes the user can get ALL of his outlook stuff back.
