i've been fooling around with the Beta for MS Outlook 2007. I love it, and will probably be one of the thousands forced to fork out some dough come Feb when the trial version stops working.... :(

Unlike the the other beta MS Office apps, Outlook requires that you completely uninstall Outlook 2003 for it to run. No surprise, my Dsktop Software can't seem to find the new Outlook file. Anyone know a workaround? Or am I gonna be forced to reinstall the older Outlook until BB/RIM software catches up?

At this time there is no work around as the databases for 2007 have been switched to xml, but rim should have a working version before its final release, if not there is going to be a lot of frustrated people. Only solution at the moment is to have a BES passing the data so its not using outlook databases as such.

I have had no problems syncing with the new Outlook. I upgraded and have not changed any settings on my Desktop Manager. FYI I am connecting directly with USB and not using BES, but I am on version .316.

If you put an appointment into a particular category in Outlook 2007, does that category sync also to the BlackBerry?
