    Wireless Synching w/ Curve & Outlook

    Advertisement



    Hi -

    I cannot get my Curve to wirelessly synch with my Outlook. I do not use Outlook email, only the Calendar and Contact portion (I use my personal gmail on the BlackBerry). How do I configure my Outlook & BlackBerry so I can manipulate my Calendar on either my handheld or desktop? Thank you in advance.

    Welcome to the stacks. Sorry, wireless sync is not availible unless you are on the BES.

    Thank you for that...

    What about reconciling my email and gmail? How can I delete an email on either handheld or the computer and have it show up on each?

    You can have it delete on gmail when you delete on handheld but not the other way. Since the BIS makes a copy of the gmail email and send to the BB there is no real two way sync.

    Go to messages, menu, options, email reconciliation, delete on and switch to mailbox and handheld and set on conflicts handset wins. make sure you save.

    Is there a way that I can get wireless synch set up through the BES system but still use my gmail account as my email?

    Yes . If your company uses the BES they will set up your work outlook to wirelessly sync with your BB. You will also be able to set upto 10 pop3 or imap email accounts to come to the phone. Is that what you were asking?

    Yes, basically.

    So my company would have to purchase BES?

    Yes. I also beleve there is a way to get a hosted bes not through your company to be able to run with your pc at home but i could just be off my rocker. BES is alittle out of my league b/c i haven't used it, just taken RIM's online course to get certified to BES Admin it.

    Got it. While you're answering all my questions re: BB's, here's another on a slightly different subject.

    You know how in the Address Book section, under Options, there's a "Map Address" and "To/From" option. How do I get this to work? I can't get TeleNav maps up but I did download Google Maps. Is there a way to get it so when I click "Map Address" Google Maps begins and locates the address from my Address Book?
