Hi. I have BES, and I cannot see my "contact group" being sync from my outlook to my blackberry. Can someone tell me if this is even possible? Right now, I have to recreate the mailing list in my blackberry again..and it is quite tedious and error prone :(

Yes it is. You can use the basic contact sync for BB/Outlook so you don't have to manually enter data for the time being, but make sure wireless synchronization is turned on in your settings for your contacts options.

Hi. Sorry I am not clear. I CAN sync with outlook, but just not the "group". For example, I can sync John, Bill, Tom individually no problem. However, in my outlook, I also create a group called "lunch" that contain "john, bill and tom". So, in my desktop, I just need to type lunch and it will automatically load "john, bill and tom" to it. My problem is that those lists never show up in my blackberry, even though it is in my desktop outlook.

It seems that I cannot do that, as I had searched other forums and "list" cannot be synced. Too bad.

Nope. I had to recreate the groups I use on my work 8830. They did not sync over from Outlook.
