Re: PocketMac

Ben,

I have an iMac with OS X Leopard. My BB is World Edition. Currently, I am only synching iCal, One Way synch (computer overrides BB). Even then certain entries keep multiplying on sync. Syncing emails sent on BB to computer is working OK.

 Have had no luck with Address Book or Bookmark. Either get error messages or multiple entries. They also slow down the sync a lot.

Re: PocketMac

Sounds like a possible device database issue.    Unfortunatly Leopard isn't explicity supported by Pocketmac, however this causing your issue is unlikely.

 

Please tell me your device OS version (Options>About>v4.?.?.?)

I just purchased a Blackberry 8830 and then downloaded the Pocketmac sofware.  I had no problems syncing with Entourage 2004 the first time.  However, since then the sync function freezes when trying to sync tasks.  Everything else syncs fine.  Unfortunately, despite numerous attempts to get support from RIM, there has been no response from them at all (and, yes, I have checked my spam folders).

 

So, just curious if anyone else has had similar issues and what might have been done to resolve them.

Not quite...

PocketMac 4.0.20b supports and will work with Entourage 2004.

Entourage 2008 isn't supported and won't sync.

Hi Carl,

 

Are you using OSX Leopard 10.5.x by any chance?

Re: PocketMac

Thats probably the problem then. With Leopard the first sync will usually work, but after that tasks will probably have problems. I'd expect that to be fixed up with the full Leopard-compatable release for PocketMac. Its inconvenient, but you'll probably have to keep Task sync turned off for the time being. :-S
