Default Linking Desktop Outlook to Outlook Web Access

Please Login to Remove!

I just got a 8703e BB from my company and need to transfer a lot of contact numbers into it. The BB is linked to a BES server with a company e-mail account and Outlook Web Access, but I cannot cradle the BB to a desktop.

I have 300 contacts on my desktop in Microsoft Outlook 2002. I would like to transfer them to the contacts file in Outlook Web Access so they show up in the BB.

What is the best way to do this? Someone suggested e-mailing the contacts. But, I do not have any e-mail set up in my desktop Outlook program, I just use it to store contact numbers.

Help!!

OWA is just another way to get to the Exchange mailboxes. Assuming that the Berry is activated with that email address, contacts should auto-sync.

Is OWA set up under the same mailbox as the one that is set up in the Outlook client?

Fiffer is on the right track here - set up your exchange / webmail account on the system with the outlook contacts. Then you need to import the local contacts into the exchange account. I don't know the details behind that bit off the top of my head, but I know it's possible. I'll look for you when I get home tonight.

The OWA e-mail account is a corporate account with a corporate e-mail.

The contacts are stored in my desktop at home in Microsoft Outlook 2002. It is not linked to any e-mail.

I'm not sure what to do, and would hate to have to manually re-enter everything in OWA.

Can you bring the .pst onsite and attach it to a copy of outlook that's hooked to the exchange server?

Alternatively, is it possible to connect to the exchange server remotely by tunneling RPC over HTTP? I haven't set that up in a while, but if your admin says it's doable, a quick google search should turn up the exact instructions you need.

Jackiegal do you have access to an Outlook client with your work Exchange server. If so, simply import your .pst from your home computer to the Outlook client for work and it will sync your BB,OWA,Outlook, and any other Client you have or want attached to the Exchange server.

When you Export your .pst from your home comp you can what to export (i.e. contacts, calender email, ect...)

hope this helps

GJ Kormpressor with your recommendations

You need to have access to an outlook desktop with your corporate e-mail in order to import the .pst you created from your home Outlook. You cannot import it through OWA as far as I am aware.
