    Hello! Pearl-Outlook 2000 problem

    Advertisement



    Just purchased a Blackberry Pearl from Verizon. After searching for several months for a PDA phone (husband has a treo - didn't want to go that route) I decided to get the pearl. Only problem so far is that I run OUtlook 2000 which apparently is not supported by the pearl operating system 4.3. Any suggestions? I really need to be able to sync my calendar, contacts and tasks. From what I have been able to find, the pearl 8130 won't sync with the previous versions of the operating systems, even though they support outlook 2000. Is this true?
    Thanks for any help you can give me!

    According to the RIM website Desktop Manger 4.2 works with Outlook 2000 (and your Pearl). for more info here is the applications reference grid for Desktop Manager:

    Re: Hello! Pearl-Outlook 2000 problem

    Thanks! I actually am trying 4.2 sp2. Contacts and Tasks will sync, but calendar will not (which of course is what I'm most wanting!). Considering upgrading to a newer version of Outlook, but am reluctant (I'm one of 10 people at my office using Outlook 2000).
    Any suggestions you can give will be much appreciated!
