Default Outlook sync difficulty

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all! Just got a blackberry (tour) after 5+ years of windows mobile and I'm loving it, can't wait for 5.0 and some threadlicious texting action that's a little more intuitive than the current setup ^_^

Anyhoo, I've been having a problem that I'm not sure the source. I'm running Windows 7 RC1 and have Outlook 2007 and the latest BBDesktop Manager. Everything syncs fine as far as I can tell, except for calendar items I create! I have about 4 new appointments in my calendar on the blackberry that are completely ignored by Outlook :(. Did some research and found nothing concrete except deleting the CICAL, which makes me sad. Is that the only possibly solution?

Also, I go to Georgia Tech and use their Zimbra server for my tasks, email, contacts, etc. Is there an easy way to sync up with all that over the net on my phone as opposed to through my computer?

Thanks!

Edit: One other question, does anyone using W7 know of a way to turn the blackberry into a bluetooth remote kinda thing? I noticed when I connected it for the first time with Bluetooth it mentioned something about it while drivers were installing.

Have you looked into Google Sync?

As for the calendar not working as you expect, it could be the fact that you are using beta software (Win 7) which is not yet really supported. Are you running DM 5?

Use have choose syn in two ways in your DBM. So you can sync data from BB to PC and PC to BB. Try it and tell if it wrong ^_^

For Zimbra, you could try Google Sync...i think it possible

Default problem with items on BB not syncing to Outlook

I might be having the same problem.

I have Outlook 2007, Windows XP, BlackBerry Desktop Mgr software version 5.0.1.18 and a Blackberry 8220 and recently noticed that items that other people have sent me or items that I created on the Blackberry are not getting sync'd back to Outlook.

I have two-way sync set up. I just looked through all settings. I didn't notice it having a conflict--it just seems to ignore certain items on the device.

I'm not sure if it is missing all items other people send me or just some. It might be only some items.

If anyone can advise I'd appreciate it!
