You only need Outlook and Desktop Manager. 

Open up desktop manager, double click "Synchonrize".  Make sure the "Synchronize organizer data" checkbox is checked.  Go to the tab above called "Configuration."  Click on "Configure Synchronization".  Check the checkbox by "Calender", select Outlook in list, click "Ok", then "Ok" again.  Now go to Synchronize tab above.  Click on "Synchronize Now".  That should do it.

I have tried and the desktop manager does not "see" outlook, it only sees outlook express for address -- it sees nothing for tasks and calendar.   Is it possible that it is because I am still Outlook 2000?

Sover, what version of desktop manager do you have? 

To find that out, open up dtm, and click on help, then about desktop manager.

If it is version 4.3, you will need to uninstall 4.3 and install desktop manager 4.2, service pack 2.  Version 4.3 does not support outlook 2000.  Once you downgrade to 4.2 with service pack 2, you will see the option for outlook 2000 when you synchronize.

 

Let me know if this works for you.

Re: What program can I use for Calendar on my computer and Blackberry?

I use both window and mac. I find the pocket mac works great with my Ical. I use my BB as the main source, only because i'ts in my pocket 24/7, and use the one way sync to sync my Ical.
