Welcome to the Seven Forums, Crine. Very good and informative post you have there, worth some rep. (Third time for me, to rep new members first post. Is this going to be a habit?
The quoted statement is exactly why I have another approach to this issue. I have Outlook 2010 installed on 3 computers (netbook, laptop and desktop), starting automatically in each of them when booted. All set up with the same email accounts, all accounts leaving the messages on the server for 30 days, all rigs storing and using their individual locally stored PST-files.
This way, leaving the messages on server long enough for all rigs to be able to read them, all rigs get the new messages and store them locally, so whichever rig and Outlook I'm running, I'm always OK and receive my mails.
