I agree.  I am trying to get my BB and outlook for mac 2011 to sync and I am pulling my hair out!

Any thoughts/help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Sync between office for mac outlook 2011 and BB

I was under the impression that iPhone will only sync with the contacts portion of the newly released OFM 2011 and not the calendar component.

 

Am I missing something?

Hello life_001,

Have a look at KB24730 which talks about support for Microsoft Office 2011 and Mac.

 

Thanks! And have a great day.

Re: Sync between office for mac outlook 2011 and BB

We switched our team to Mac's six months ago and recently upgraded to Mac Office 2011 and found we can no longer sync our BB's! Help is there a solution? When will an upgrade to Desk Top Manager be ready? We do not want iPhones ...

Re: Sync between office for mac outlook 2011 and BB

Hi all, 

 

I understand that there is currently no fix available to effectively sync tasks and calendar on BB with Mac Outlook.  However, I have read that the BB address book and Mac Outlook should sync ok.  

 

My problem / question is this - when you input an email address using your BB device, and plug it in to your Mac it imports it into the standard Mac address book, before sync-ing with Mac Outlook.  The BB address book only accepts the field 'email' (ie not 'work' or 'personal' email).  When this syncs with the Mac address book it comes up in the 'other email' field.  The problem is however that Mac Outlook doesn't pick up the 'other email' field when it brings email addresses over from the Mac address book (it only accepts 'work' or 'personal') - so effectively any email address that you input on your BB will not be carried across to your Mac Outlook address book.

 

If anyone knows what I am talking about and is aware of a way around it I would really like to know.  

 

Thanks!
