| | Good results with Exchangemymail
I've been using Entourage, ExchangeMyMail with their MS-Exchange and BES service for almost a year and can't say enough good about it. I have 2 Macs plus the BB and all 3 are in constant sync with each other for email, contacts and calendar. Entourage does not support syncing of notes and tasks which is kind of a pain, I still end up using Pocketmac once in a while to keep them in sync. It is almost scary how fast an update on any of the 3 units propagates to the other 2, you can press enter on my laptop and watch the update appear on the BB almost instantly. It is not cheap, I pay $30 per month over my standard BB plan - $20 per month (actually $18 with the BB Forums discount) to EMM, and an extra $10 to T-Mo for the BES support. Entourage seems to be the weakest link, in addition to the lack of tasks and notes, email sent from Entourage does not get synced to the BB, but if you send from the BB it will show up in Entourage (using your MS-Exchange email, POP and IMAP are another story since they still sync through BIS). I mainly wanted the calendar and contacts syncing, and this was the only way I found to have it totally reliable. I ended up setting up my own domain through GoDaddy so my MS-Exchange email address is totally unique to myself. Otherwise I think you end up using an ExchangeMyMail address which I didn't want.
