Maybe you've done this already: If you open intellisync (well, that's what I'm using anyway) and then navigate to the configuration settings, you select the applications you are using for calendar, contacts, etc. Seems to me those are your software options. Maybe there are other sync applications that work with your BB, I don't know, but situation would be similar---look at your configuration option setting within the sync application.
And by the way, Outlook has worked good for me with the 7100t.
