Welcome to the Blackberry Forums!
I, too, made the switch from Palm to Blackberry about 2 months ago, but I was not using Outlook at the time. The BB desktop is not like the Palm desktop at all in that there is no calendar, tasks etc on a platform that you enter data into. If you have been sync'ing your Palm with Outlook, you can do the same with BB.
There is a 'Device Switch Wizard' on the BB desktop that should set up the 'conduits' as you are used to them from the Palm.

HI and welcome to the forums!
You can sync your Blackberry to Outlook as well.
Blackberry's desktop manager program is used to synchronize, backup, restore and configure data on the Blackberry.
You can also use the desktop manager to do the initial data transfer between your Palm and the Blackberry using the
Switch Device Wizard.
Try this link to Blackberry 101, click on 8330 smartphone and when the demo loads, click on menu in the upper
left hand corner. Go to option "using your device with a computer".
Once you see the basic principal, post back and let us know what particulars we can help with.
Please include the following information in your reply so we can give you the best help:
Version of Outlook
Version of Windows (if Vista 32 or 64 bit)
Version of Palm software your are on.

device switch wizard is ok, but if you have your palm synced with outlook, just stick in desktop manager and sync outlook with your bb... must more stable and surefire way for it to work correctly.
palm and bb are different technologies and different file format... however they both understand outlook... outlook is your common ground friend
