Default Sync 7100t with two different computers

I have a desktop at work and a laptop at home. Is there anything strange I should know about trying to sync my 7100 with both? I seem to recall something about this pre-database-crash but could not find it today. Let me know if this has been covered in another thread.

I do it. I just make sure that I have the same versions of the software in both places.

I have my 7100t linked with the BES server at the office. Will performing a synch at home change my settings etc?

I would like to have a copy of my contacts at home but I do not want to mess up my ability to connect and receive my ofice email.

Default double sync issue

I did this for my 7510 as I have a work laptop and PC at home. The only issue I ran into with my 7510 is that when I would sync it at home (after I just sync'd it at the office) is that a message would pop up and tell me that my 'security settings were expired: please randomly move the mouse to generate a new key"... or words to that effect. after doing that I would not get my email from the BES at work. It wasn't until I changed the settings on the Desktop Manager to not ask to generate a new security key and stopped updating it when at home that i solved my problem (unless I was connected via VPN).

You can sync as many as you like but beware of those little settings (as well as not allowing duplicate entries). At least that how it is for my 7510

I have my 7100t synced with a BES as well but I sync all my calendar, notes and contacts on my home computer. I have not run into any problems... I was worried about it, too. I called tmo before I did it and they assured me everything would fine... whew. So far I have not run into any problems.
