Anyone know Outlook Settings for Mail Calender & Contacts?
 
I had my BB set up to sync with Outlook Mail Calender and contacts

Downloaded Gmail yesterday (thinking it was just an app) and now it's written over my Outlook settings - it could warned me first - grrrrrrrr

Anyone know Outlook Settings for Mail Calender & Contacts?

There are no mail settings, as it doesn't sync mail.

Im assuming that Desktop Manager is not syncing?
Check [on BB] Options - Advanced - Default services - and make sure the outlook address is default for CICAL and try syncing again, it should then work.


EDIT : Ive just seen your other thread about them being wirelessly synced. How did you set that up to begin with?

Mine does - or it did - wirelessly

but if you dont know it will sync mail/contacts/calendar then you definitely wont know the settings

No worries - I'll have to get in touch with BB

I assumed you were using standard BIS, syncing with Desktop Manager (which doesn't sync email).
As you didn't mention in this thread (only your other thread) that it was wirelessly syncing.

Moved to the 8500 section.

Please do not double post. Your second thread has been deleted.

The only way to sync everything wirelessly is to use BES. Talk to your BES Admin to get it set up again.

Perhaps you were getting email via BIS and then using Google to sync contacts and calendar?

Bis bes don't know what they are. Know the email was working wirelessly with my outlook. I get our admin a call, don't know what they did but its all sorted fine

Your model in your profile states a 8520, thats the gemini, it also where you posted the other thread mentioning wireless.

What is the correct model number for your device?

Please update your profile if it is not an 8520.

Chris K 08-16-2010 10:53 AM

Mine is 8520 but its BB curve - also thought the subject is not specific to just one model

Yes, its a Curve, known as the Gemini to RIM, which most carriers ignore when advertising.

Not just carriers that ignore it

Ignored by Blackberry© too - the word 'gemini' is not mentioned anywhere in the official BB paperwork, box, instructions, etc

Blackberry describe their mobile as "Curve 8520"

Very confusing

BIS is Blackberry Internet Service - Used for personal email

BES is Blackberry Enterprise Server - Used for corporate email Since you mentioned your admin, this is what you have.

You can learn more about each in the FAQ section (http://www.blackberryfaq.com/index.php/BlackBerry_FAQ). Scroll down under Internet and Email FAQs and look for appropriate section.

Don't get hung up on the "name" associated with the devices. Look at the series to find the appropriate forum to post in. Since you have an 8520, it is an 8500 series. (All 85XX phones would be 8500 series.) I think the names are a schema designed by RIM to confuse us all, especially recently so best bet is to totally ignore the name and give the model number if you want to be sure that you are understood.
