    Re: Outlook, I dont use it.... should I?

    Outlook is a program from Microsft that is included with it's Office suite.

    In adition to syncing your contacts, it syncs your tasks, calendar, etc. I am using it with my Pearl, and in the past used it with a PPC device and a Palm device, and it has always worked quite well for what I do.

    To get Outlook you would have to purchase some form of Microsoft Office (if you don't already have it.) Depending on the version it can be quite pricy.

    I'm not sure if BB will sync with Outlook Express which comes bundled with every version of Windows, maybe one of the other stackers with more experience can definitively answer that part.

    don't know that it will work with Outlook Express but the full Outlook comes bundles in the regular Microsoft Office so unless you're using a mac looony or running linux you should be able to get your hands on a copy of outlook pretty easily

    To sync calander and contacts with outlook express you need a third party program to run interference. outlook express does not have a full contact list or calander so as such without a third party app cannot sync with it.

    I have got Outlook now and it was running great, but for some reason all of a sudden I cant edit anything in outlook. I can sync from my Blackberry to Outlook and back, but I cant edit in Outlook.

    Any ideas why?

    Are you working offline? check in the bottom right hand corner and see if it is offline.
