OneNote in Outlook

    Can OneNote work on its workbooks on an Exchange service? If so, how and
    what is the best practice?

    Microsoft has too many cross-platform sharing protocols for a home user to
    keep track of. And different versions of the same operating system have or
    lack the same cross-platform ability. One will have VPN access. Another
    won't. One supports offline files, other versions of the same OS won't.
    It's a hellatious mess. So I don't want to delve into the cross-platform
    suggestions in the OneNote help file.

    ON has noithing to do with an Exchange Server.

    As Rainald says, OneNote doesn't know anything about Exchange (and vice
    versa). You can, however, store your OneNote notebooks on a SharePoint
    server, which you can also use to store Outlook "public folders" in most
    cases (calendars and contacts most notably).

    OneNote and Outlook interoperate in a number of interesting ways. There's
    an article about that here:

    IMO using ON2007 with a SharePoint Server causes mire thronles than it
    might solve.

    As is often the case, the newer versions work and play better than the older
    ones. SP2 for OneNote helped matters somewhat. Using OneNote 2010 and a
    SharePoint 2010 server should be pretty painless.

    Did it really?
    Any reading in that?

    Yes, at least the announcements say so.
    And there should be at least be one area where the new version - where
    so many important things were left out - brings fundamental improvement
    ;-)

    Yep - here's an article from Mike Tholfson about OneNote 2007 SP2 and
    SharePoint:
