Default Blackberry - Outlook sync on two computers

Please Login to Remove!

I recently switched from Palm to Blackberry and I have some issues with intellisync.

Before, I usually synced my treo with my home computer outlook (no exchange server) and work computer (with exchange server) together. However, blackberry desktop manager does not allow me to do that.

To sync with my home computer
: Desktop manager --> choose outlook in sync configuration.
: Blackberry --> disable 'wireless sync' option of each application on my blackberry and

To sync with my work computer.
: Desktop manager --> outlook does not show as an option in "sync configuration" menue. I can only choose between ascII and yahoo. I guess it is because my outlook is on exchange server and notes/address books are not in off-line
: Blackberry --> therefore, only option is to turn on wireless sync option of each note/tasks application so that it can be synced together with my outlook e-mail.

Is there any way to make my work computer on exchange server can be synced only through USB cable (turn off wireless sync option in my blackberry and sync through USB on both of my computers)?

Your work Desktop Manager is probably configured like this for a reason (maybe to have all synch information pass through the BES), so I don't think you will be able to change it. In order to continue to sync between both computers you will need to continue to use the method you have been using.
