Yesterday I got my new BB 9000 bold and installed BB Desktop Manager 4.6 for sync with Outlook 2007. I simply installed it over BB Desktop Manager 18.104.22.168.
The new version demands that Outlook must be the default email-client and also wants a user-profile. I have no user profile on Outlook and I use Thunderbird as mail-client. Any idea how I can sync with Outlook without user profile and without making Outlook my default mail-client?
THX in advance.

Hi and welcome to the forums!
Please specify PC, operating system.
On Outlook 2007 are you running any connectors?

Operating system is Windows XP SP 3
PC is Intel Pentium Dualcore with 2GB RAM and 320 GB HD and graphics adapter GeForce 8800 with 512 MB RAM
There are no connectors on Outlook because I use it only for storing my Blackberry data. I do nothing else with it because I don't like it. Foremail I use Thunderbird.
I installed GnuPGP 1.4.7 on Thunderbird and it was automatically installed under Outlook too. I even had MS Business Connector installed but deinstalled it because I have no use for it. MS Business Connector is sort of a small CRM-solution together with Outlook which installs an MS-SQL serve, so I kicked it, because I run everything on MySQL.
Hope that answers your questions.

So basically, you are just synching the BB with the outlook right?
Unless you are BES the email won't sync anyway.
So unless I'm missing something( entirely possible) is that what we are trying to do?

Yes, exactly. Only synching calendar, tasks and notes. Nothing else. I get my mails forwarded to my BB Bold by the Blackberry Internet Service of my provider anyway.

So when you setup the desktop software, was outlook in the options to choose for synchronization?

Ok, Lets try going with the flow.
Bring down Thunderbird, Bring up outlook, add your email address in. run sync config, and use the profile, finish sync, disable the
email address in Outlook with an invalid password, You should be able to sync.
Let me know.
