Default Mail Connector is driving me mad!!

Please Login to Remove!

No matter what I do I cannot get the Mail Connector to work. I'm on Verizon and when I get to the point of getting all my info in and moving forward I get a message that there is an error communicating with the Mail Connector. I get this message whether the connector is running locally or I am trying to connect to a shared one.
Existing accounts are still being forwarded correctly but any new ones crap out like this. I'm basically unable to add any new accounts.
If nobody has any ideas, who the hell do I need to talk to at tech support to get some real help? The people I talked to today were completely clueless.

[rant]BTW, why the hell can't they just let you download the damn connector and configure it manually? You should be able to download this stupid thing once, install it on a server and then let everybody share it.
Also, for $15/month I was using Sprints Business Connect on my Treo and it let me view all my Exchange info (cal, contacts, inbox, etc) and it would let computers running the software elsewhere take over without any troubles. I basically had to install it on our server and then set the logged in user on the server as capable of taking over the reins for when my computer was turned off. Other users could do the same. It basically meant that as long as the email server was up everybody had mobile acces to Exchange. Why the hell can't RIM do somthing like this without forcing people into expensive enterprise software with crap they don't need.I guess I was naive to think that a Blackberry would do this particular task better than a Treo.[/rant]
