I have Torch 9800 and had no problem with synchronizing it with my calendar, address book and notes. Then I updated the Desktop Manager to the newest one and after that I´m getting this message:
"Cannot log on to Exchange Server. Please check server access or provide a valid password"
I´m not using an Exchange Server and as I said before it only occurred after upgrading the Desktop Manager.
I would appreciate if someone could help me and provide me with a step by step instruction as I´m not the best one in computers :-)
The Enterprise Account Settings are set to NONE.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I found this on another website and it did the magic :-)
SOLUTION: Assuming you have the latest Desktop Manager installed from BB, with both BB & OL 2010 closed
1.Open Control Panel and click Mail
2.When the window pops up, click on Show Profiles
3.Select your profile and click the Copy button. Name the copy whatever you want - we won't be keeping it around long.
4.Start Desktop Manager and connect your BB.
5.Start configuring your Organizer, but choose the copy profile for any item. Click OK when DS asks about remapping folders.
6.After configuring any Outlook component, click OK until you get back to your main DS window. At this point, you should not get the previous error message.
7.Go back into DS and configure all your Outlook components with your original profile. You will get the folder remapping message again - just click OK.
8.When you're done, click OK until you're back at the main DS window. You shouldn't get any error messages at this point.
9.From Control Panel, go back in to Mail and delete the duplicate profile you previously created.

I have this happen occassionally, seemingly at random as no changes have been made to settings between functioning and not functioning.
What I've found works the last few times, just by trial and error, is battery pull restart the blackberry, restart the computer, start BlackBerry Desktop Software, connect BB, go to Organizer page of BBDS and reset the settings. Then set them up again and it works. PITA, but no reinstalls were necessary for me.
Verizon Blackberry BOld 9650
BBDS 22.214.171.124 (both updated in software)
Outlook 2003 running on Windows Vista
No exchange server...just the local data for outlook cal/memo/addresses being synched between pc/bb

Thank you very much, Schriftlieder, your solution worked for me. Why BBDS would even think I have Exchange when I do not now and have never had it, I do not know. I use Outlook 2007, Bold 9000.
I'm just counting the days until the end of September.

Thanks for the great advice. This simple solution worked for me...almost. Have any idea why I can't configure my Memo Pad? Does anyone? I could check it, configure it, but then the checkmark would be gone! How bizarre. It's always synced before.

Thanks very much, ajonsson. I searched for a solution most of today, and this worked perfectly!

I have had this problem for several months on Windows 7 and it didnt happen prior to that on Windows XP. Not sure if thats relevant.
Although the solution given above works I am having to repeat it every couple of weeks. Its extremely frustrating. I shouldn't be having to mess with Outlook profiles to synch the BB and Outlokk - its one of the key features of the phone.
Does anyone know when a new version of the Desktop software will be released with a fix for this?
