BES with Outlook conflict

My company uses the BES for e-mails only and I use Outlook as my personal contact maangement software.

 

Everytime I sync my phone with my computer to update my calander and contacts, it corrupts my access to the BES and I can no longer access my company e-mails. (Personal home e-mails are not affected)

 

So far, everyone is telling me I need to replace my Blackberry with an Android or i-Phone to get around this issue.

 

I like my Blackberry, can anyone out there help?

Re: BES with Outlook conflict

Did you install it with BES option? If installed with BIS you issue can happen.

Re: BES with Outlook conflict

I am talking Desktop Manager.

What are you syncing? Most everything syncs Over The Air and DM is not needed for it.

Re: BES with Outlook conflict

1 - Not sure I understand your BES vs. BIS question

 

2 - I'm syncing my calendar & contacts that are stored on my personal computer in Outlook.  I only use the company's Microsoft Exchange server for e-mails.

 

3 - I discovered a program called gSyncit that apparently will sync my contacts & calendar from Outlook to a G-mail account which they claim I can then have my Blackberry sync with wirelessly, which would eliminate using Desktop Manager which would eliminate the issue of DM reconfiguing my BES settings everytime I sync making me loose my BES connection.  Would you consider this a way to proceed?

Re: BES with Outlook conflict

That sounds like a good way to do it, if wanting to sync personal calendar and not the work one.
