Default Re: Unable to change CICAL to default

That's the point you are missing. Before you added an email to your BIS, the calendar app on the BlackBerry used the base calendar, or whatever RIM calls it. If you looked in calendar options or the default CICAL options, you saw a calendar named default. And when you syc'd, that calendar sync'd with Outlook. But stop thinking of it as your 'Outlook' calendar. It was just the default calendar at that time.

When you added the gmail address to BIS and the service book was pushed to the BlackBerry handset, the gmail address was made the default and the base calendar went away. That's the way it works. When you deleted the gmail CICAL service book the gmail calendar was collapsed into the base calendar, the gmail calendar was removed, and the base calendar reappeared. With the gmail CICAL service book present, your calendar identified with the address is now the default calendar and that is what will sync with your Outlook.

If you were to add more addresses to BIS you would see additional calendars, and only the one set as the default CICAL will be sync'd with Outlook.

So, based on your description, you could ignore the fact that your BlackBerry calendar is labeled with the address. Your calendar invites sent from the BlackBerry will be seen as coming from a gmail address, which you may not like, and the acceptances will be received in gmail and not at the 'work' address you are using in your Outlook email client.

On the other hand, you might add your 'work' email address to BIS and set the default CICAL and default CMIME to that address.
