Copy emails from Outlook 2003 to BB

Is there a way to copy emails from MS Outlook 2003 to my Blackberry? I am using BIS not BES.

Hi there!

 

BIS will act on new emails only...not history. The Desktop Software might be able to...give it a try and see if it can (I've never had reason to, so can't tell you from experience). DO NOT install the desktop redirector, however, or you will wind up with duplicates...

Well, perhaps not so strange. BB's aren't by design an email storage device...they are a wireless email handling device...having history of emails prior to the BB's existence (as far as activation is concerned) might be contradictory to the basic design characteristics. I realize that WM devices indeed sync the entire mailbox...but that's WM...not BB.
