I just got myself a 7290 from T-Mobile a couple of days ago too! For the MS Outlook, I've used the bundled "Desktop Manager" software to synchronize my contacts so far. I'm pretty sure you can also sync the Calendar, MemoPad/Notes, and Tasks. I haven't gotten to those items yet. You'll probably want to update the BlackBerry software on your handheld as well (software.se.t-mobile.com). Hm, I'm pretty new with it all myself. Hope this helps!

Data files (Word, Excel, text, jpg's etc.) can be attached to emails and viewed, but that's it. You can not access them or save them to your PC. Picture attachments (.jpg's) can be saved and accessed by the Pictures app.

You can save pictures (.jpg's) which are email attachments or on a Web page, and view them in the Pictures app, and send them to other BlackBerry Messenger users, but that's it. There is no other way to access or use them.

A 3rd party app called eOffice might give you the functionality you're looking for, but be forewarned, trying to simply view these documents on a Blackberry is difficult, let alone editing them!
--------------------------------------------------------
Update - although you can't transfer them to a computer, you can backup and restore MP3's (Ring tones) and Pictures. They are held in the Content Store on Desktop Manager 4.1's Backup / Restore applet.
