Has anyone tried Yahoo's Intellisync for Outlook? I wonder if there is any conflicts with running this with the Desktop Manager Intellisync. I sync w/DM via Bluetooth each day but would like to sync to my Yahoo calendar as well.

I use it, works well. Interface for setup is pretty much the same as DM from RIM.

Works fine (Office 2003 on WinXP).

I am a Yahoo Mail Plus user (paid account). Like many others, I am eagerly awaiting the implementation of the promised wireless address book & calendar sync between Yahoo and Blackberry, as jointly announced by the two companies in April.

Then I can stop using Outlook alltogether (I only use it in order to sync Yahoo with my Blackberry)!

I just started using Yahoo's Intellisync a few days ago as a way to sync my work Outlook with my home Outlook. Nothing has exploded yet and I've got DM on both machines.

One unexpected side effect is that any calendar appointments in Outlook with a reminder attached will become an appointment with an email reminder in Yahoo calendar. The net effect is that I get two reminders for every appointment, one from my blackberry and an email from Yahoo (usually within a few seconds of one another).

There's probably a setting either in Intellisync or on Yahoo to avoid this, but I haven't been annoyed enough to go look for it.
