Default Desktop Manager and Redirector Set-up

Please Login to Remove!

Ok So im new to the world of Blackberrys, spent the last 4 years on windows mobile devices....
I want to set up the redirection software of my computer, untill I can get the exchange server email set up with my school (cost me 70 bucks to set up). Will this option also sync my contacts? All my contact are on the exchange server.

The Redirector will only forward e-mails to your BlackBerry from Outlook. Since you have an Exchange server e-mail system, it should work (but it is VERY old techology).

Redirector will not sync up your contacts, notes, calendar or tasks. Desktop Manager has the Intellisync program built in, which will require manually syncing using the included USB cable.
