    Please Help!! Redirector or not to Redirector.

    Advertisement



    My wife just picked up a Verizon BB Storm and would like to sync it with her Outlook 2003, (Email, Calendar, Contact & Notes)

    She was doing this before with her last phone, Palm Treo, using wireless Sync.
    So, leaving a PC running for this is not a problem.

    She uses Comcast (pop) for email that is delivered in to a local PST file as with Calendar, Contacts, Notes and Tasks..

    What is the best way to do this??
    BES is not an option, (Yea, I know its the best, I use it at work for my Curve)

    Should I be using the Desktop Redirector or BIS or a combination??
    What would be the best way to set this up?

    Any help would be appreciated..

    Edit: I'm trying to set this up so it is Wireless, not using USB.

    You need BIS to push the e-mail to the device and then the Desktop Manager to sync the device with Outlook. No need at all for Redirector.

    Hope this helps!

    Get the latest DM from here. Go with 4.6 for now as the 4.7 has some "interesting" quirks to deal with.

    It sounded like the initial question was about including email in the sync. You can't do that with DM can you?

    Oops, thought I said that..

    Yes, I'm trying to figure out the best, non BES, way to wirelessly sync her Outlook Email, (which is through Comcast), Calender, Notes and Tasks.

    Either using, Desktop Manager, BIS, Redirector.. And hopefully some guidance on setting this up properly.

    Sorry, no. You can only sync your Outlook Calendar, MemoPad, Contacts and Tasks with Desktop Manager.

    I am not familiar with Redirector, but I believe the PC in question needs to be on an Exchange Server for this to work.

    If she is on Exchange, then yes, I believe the combo of Redirector and Desktop Manager will do what you are looking to do.

    BIS is BlackBerry Internet Service, used for pushing POP or IMAP e-mail accounts to your device.
