Default Syncing Outlook Calendar from an account NOT on my desktop

Please Login to Remove!

I and my assistant are using an Outlook Web Access Account to maintain my calendar so that I can access it "live." I want to sync my Blackberry with the calendar on that account -- not the one on my home desktop. Is it possible to configure the Blackberry to go to that account to sync the calendar an densure that my calendar information on the Blackberry is always current? I can't seem to find any option on the Blackberry Desktop Manager.

Simple answer, no, you can't do this with your current configuration. More complicated answer, it can be setup to do so, but you would need to convince your company to either setup a blackberry enterprise server/blackberry professional server, or setup something like rpc over tcp so you can access your work calendar through outlook.

Not really a solution, but another idea, would a shared Google Calendar with Google Sync get the job done? It wouldn't help your existing one, but this should get it done.
