Default Incomplete Sync with Outlook

Please Login to Remove!

I apologize if this has been covered... tried a search but didn't find anything quite like this...

I sync my 8800 with Outlook and it appears that sometimes, not all items get sync'd. For example, I just sync'd a moment ago, then reviewed some appointments in Outlook later in the week, and added something new (in Outlook).

I then sync'd again to get this appointment into my BB, and noticed that a "bunch" of stuff also sync'd... a few more appointments, a change in a task, and a couple of contact changes. These are all legit changes made a day or so ago, but they should have sync'd the first time. Right? It makes me wonder if there is stuff that I am missing!

For the record, I sync to two computers... desktop in my office and a laptop here at home. I am on BIS...

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

Check the setting on both sync'ed systems make sure they both are able to write to the blackberry?

Check your calendar options. If you have more than one email configured to your calendar settings, make sure both are viewable.

Everything sync's OK, on both computers... it just doesn't always happen the first time I sync. In other words, 90% of the changes get sync'd, but then the remaining few seem to come over next time. I feel like I need to "double-sync" to be sure!

I'll try to document this more carefully...

EDIT: So I just sync'd again, and there were three changes to my contact list that I made at least 3 sync's ago that have just "come across"!

I wonder... does Outlook need to be shutdown in order for a complete sync to occur?

After fiddlin' about with this, I think I have discovered the solution and though I would post it in case anyone else has the same problem.

One of the two computers I sync with was set to synchronize 'future' or 'pending' items in the calendar and task list. The other was set to sync 'all'. Depending on which computer I synced last, this could cause some strange goings on.

I have changed the one to "all" in the advanced config settings and this appears to have solved the problem.

Do I get a prize for solving my own problem?

Congrats! Yes, you do get a prize.

You may pick something from the middle row, or the top row between here and here, but you can't have the large Elmo dolls.
