    Is there anyway to sync my BB Pearl with my Windows Mail? I do not have Outlook, but want to sync my calendar and stuff with my BB. Freeware is good if there is no way.

    Steveh

    Windows Mail (Vista) is not currently supported. Here is the RIM info on supported sync's

    http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/searc...200%2037188660

    Not familiar with Vista but if you can install Outlook Express on a vista machine I beleive that will work for you...

    Good Luck!

    Thanks for the replies. That was my fear that I could not use it. Yahoo is not an option, sure i have an account, but I HATE yahoo worth a passion.

    Windows Mail is the Outlook Express replacement for Vista.

    Yes it is and it is not currently supported according to the RIM Website. Is it possible to download and install the actual Outool Express program on a Vista Machine?

    Last Modified : 2007-08-24
    Document Type : Support


    Environment
    • BlackBerry® Desktop Manager 4.2
    • Microsoft® Windows Vista™
    Problem

    There is no option to synchronize with Microsoft Mail when running Microsoft Windows Vista. When trying to synchronize, the BlackBerry device user receives the following error message:
    Windows has stopped BlackBerry Desktop Manager. Microsoft will notify you if there is a solution.
