Default Desktop Manager question

Please Login to Remove!

Hi to all here, I have been away for a couple of years. New job is now setting up BES and BB will be used here. Question, running Windows XP, BES not lunched yet for a couple of weeks. We currently user Outlook 2003 on Desktop and Goodlink on mobile devices.

I have a user who wants to sync her office calendar to her personal BB Curve so I installed DTM 4.5 and two things, looks for a messaging server and requests a password. Could it be that being it is on the network it is always going to look for a server? I thought I would be able to just retrive her Calander with no issues.

We use laptops both on Ethernet and wireless here in our company.

Thanks guys and gals....I have been out of the BB loop for a little bit.

It is very possible that because you are on a LAN your DTM is connecting to the message service ie the outlook sever, but because BES hasn't been implemented yet it won't allow any syncing to occur.

The only thing I can think of us to set up the outlook to sync off line files, then fire up the laptop off line and then fire up DTM. When it tries to access the messaging system click work offline and then connect the BB.

From within DTM make sure the calendar is set to sync and then click synchronize.

I am guessing a bit here but this is an option I would try before throwing the BB and laptop through the window!!
Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again
