Blackberry Desktop Manager most definitely does sync between the phone and Outlook. Only way it wouldn't work would be if you were using an ancient version of Outlook (Outlook 2003 is fine). I'm thinking you are trying something else since you mention palm and win mobile -- I'm pretty sure that Blackberry Desktop Manager does not have option to sync to those.
