Default Outlook sync query

Please Login to Remove!

being a total newbie to the blackberry world, im after some advice.
if i want to have 2 blackberry handhelds with outlook/calander sync'ed on both (ie if 1 person adds an appointment in calander, the other person has it appear on their device), is this possible?
if so how might i go about it?
unsure on device models as this stage.. new devices being bought by a customer.

thanks in advance!

The only way you could even come close to a possible way of doing this would be with an Exchange server.. maybe a Domino server too, but I don't know them.

Even then I don't know if you could get it working without problems.

Yes you can achieve that with the desktop software and the cable. I am assuming one user will be the primary user and want to sync all the options - contacts, etc - and the second only sync the calendar? It will be labor intensive but can be done. The second user will need to reconfigure the PIM sync information each time and only check on the Calendar. Make certain they are set for sync. The desktop software will recognize the new pin and ask if you want to sync with that one. Once done you will need to have the primary user change the settings back and sync to their pin. Labor intensive but can be done.
