Default Do recent versions of BDM sync email?

Please Login to Remove!

Working with an 8800 and a PC with XP Pro SP2 and BDM 4.5 (just downloaded).

Single user... no Exchange Server, no BES.

Just BlackBerry, Outlook and BDM on PC.

Ealrier verisons of BDM would sync with Outlook - but only the non-email portions. i.e. if you received 50 emails on your BB, and deleted 30 of them. You could sync your device with Outlook and update Calendar and Contacts etc. but you would have to go and weed through the emails again and delete the 30 from Outlook.

At the BlackBerry site for BDM, there is a sentence: "Synchronize your email and organizer information (calendar, contacts, memos and tasks) between your BlackBerry smartphone and your PC"

Does this mean that BDM now handles reconciling emails as well?

BDM never has sync'd mail and likely never will.
