View Full Version : Distribution List

03-24-2008, 09:42 AM
New to BB and got the 8830 last week. Love it. Upgraded form a Treo 650. Noticed that when I sync my contacts from Outlook my distribution lists for group e-mails don't load on the 8830. Any way to get these to transfer or do I have to rebuild manually in the 8830? If so that's a pain.
Let me know if there's a way to get around this

I think you have to rebuild them on the BB. I don't have much experience with outlook. Perhaps a more experienced user will come along and have a more favorable answer for you

Have a good day.

I can confirm that groups created on my blackberry do not sync over to Outlook. This is on my home computer, BIS, desktop manager. 4.2 SP2, and an old version of Outlook with Office XP. Have never tried creating on Outlook to see if it would sync to the blackberry. And don't don't know what happens with groups on BES.

Lists created in Outlook don't sync with the BB, and groups created on the BB don't come across to Outlook in the BES environment. Seems a shame, really...
