I appreciate your response to this thread. I have a similar problem. During out-of-office trips, I set appointments on my BB (8330 Curve). I want to add them (not transfer them ) to my Desktop (Outlook 2003) / XP Pro during synconization. In short, I want all my appotments on both my BB and Desktop. I've tried several methods and there doesn't seem to be a way to duplicate appopintments, just transfer them in some way, My old HP iPAQ let me syncronize a complete copy on both. Do you know of any solutions?
