Default BBerry with "Home" Outlook + "Office" Outlook

Please Login to Remove!

I am a long time Palm user with a Centro for phone plus my contacts and calendar. I also have a BBerry which I only use for corporate e-mail. I really don't want to carry two phones anymore and with an upcoming change in my company's reimbursement policy I would like to get a new "personal" BBerry (most likely the Tour from Verizon) which I would use for everything.

If I get away from the Palm platform I would like to start using my "office" outlook for business contacts and calendar to give my secretary access. At the same time I would like to have my personal contacts and calendar on my "home" outlook. I understand how the mailbox would work with 2 e-mail adresses, but am confused how BBerry would handle 2 versions of Outlook contacts and calendars.

Would my BBerry just merge the 2 sets of contacts and calendars into one or would I have 2 separate sets of contacts and 2 calendars on my phone?

Alternatively is there a way to sync my two calendars and contacts? If I did it that way, would checking the "private" box hide those contacts and appointments if I gave my secretary access?

Thank you in advance for your help

How are things set up at work? Do they have a BES?

Wow, I am really surprised that nobody knows the answer to this question.

Would it work to use my office outlook contacts & calendar as my contacts & calendar and mark all of my personal contacts and events as "private" so my EA can't view them. Then can I manually sync my calendar and contacts to my home outlook so I have a copy in case I leave my current firm? This way my office would update automatically and my home would just be a manual back-up.

I'm on BIS so I'm not sure how the BES would work but a friend of mine has the centro and had an issue with his work overriding his calendar and contacts so I wonder if BES would work the same.

I do use outlook to sync my calender and contacts with a notebook I take to work and my home computer so yes, you can manually backup the address book and calendar, leaving a copy at home.

I am new to BB. I am having a problem. I synchronized my BB to my Outlook and now I am unable to find my outlook. I cannot access outlook on my desktop. Everything went fine. It shows correct contacts and calendar information on my BB, but I need to get to my Outlook email from my desktop. HELP! I have very important saved emails in there that I need access to! Can anyone help me?
