    Exporting Contacts from BB to Oulook

    Advertisement



    I know it;s possible to sync my BB with Outlook so I can have my contacts in the Outlook database, but how do I do that? I press the sync button in the desktop manager, but it says there is nothing to sync. Any suggestions would be great.

    MJRetro23,

    The Sync should be two way. Check your configuration settings in the sync setup. You should have sync set and not import.

    I do not see the option to have sync set and not import. Where am I looking and what should I click?

    What version of Desktop Manager are you using?

    I think, but I may be remembering it wrong with that version, you need to open the sync configuration setup Configure button, Select Address Book and then Click Chooze. There should be three check boxes when Outlook is selected, Import, Export and Sync. Make sure Sync is checked

    Hey here's what you do: you have to click on configure pim that is going to take you to the screen where you can configure what you want to syncronize. Oonce you select what you want click ok and then you can do syncronize now try it and let me know if it works.

    It looks like all I needed to do was upgrade the desktop manager, now all of your advice makes sense and it worked. Thank You much

    Re: Exporting Contacts from BB to Oulook

    I am having problems with this...

    I am totally lost, as this is my first time trying to do this. Is it possible to get step, by step directions on this?

    My question is that I have my blackberry connected to my PC, I go into desktop manager...then I am lost on this part.

    I can't find the option to export it to outlook...not sure if I actually have to do this via outlook or not...please help

    You don't really export. Sync settings are managed in Intellisync in Desktop Manager. I'd be happy to give you step-by-step instructions but I don't have all this memorized nor do I actually use Desktop Manager any more since I'm on BES with wireless sync.

    Here are a couple of links that might prove useful:

    Choose the appropriate link from the above- say if you use MS Outlook->
    Click on BlackBerry for Microsoft Outlook

    Hope that helps.
