    Does the Pearl handle Outlook Express also?

    Unless I am using the Outlook address book, why would I need Outlook versus just getting emails sent to me?

    Hello ephailey. The BB desktop software does not synch with Outlook Express. The synch function allows the use of the BB as a PIM. If you don't need contact details, tasks or diary, then you don't really need the Desktop, but you are losing out on one of the BB's most powerful features.

    Desktop Manager will sync with Outlook Express, or at least according to the BlackBerry DM 4.2 System Requirements Page. From that Page

    Organizer Support:
    Microsoft® Outlook® 2000 Outlook 2002/XP or Outlook 2003
    Lotus Notes® 5.0.6 or later, 6.0, 6.5, 7.0
    ACT!® 4.0.2, 5.0 (2000) or 6.0
    Lotus Organizer® 6.1
    Microsoft Outlook Express 5.0 or 6.0
    Novell® GroupWise® 6.0.1, 6.5.4 or higher and 7.0
    ASCII Importer/Exporter

    But Outlook Express is limited in it's capabilities. I Think it only has an address book. If you want the calendar, Notes/MemoPad and Tasks from your BB synced to your desktop, you will need Outlook or another of the PIMs

    Hope this helps
