Here is how I do it. I have Lotus notes because I am forced to but I use outlook to read my mail via "Microsoft Outlook connector for Lotus Notes" which is a free program from MS to read from your notes server. This allows me to use my Toshiba PPC via activesync on outlook with no problems and my Blackberry uses intelisync to sync with the Lotus server. Only problem here is that the contacts do not sync between Lotus and outlook but I just exported them from Lotus notes and imported them into outlook. Works for me plus I can use the much better interfact of outlook to manage my email.
