Sync w Outlook 2000

The phone seems to sync just fine, but when I open Outlook I cannot find my contacts list.  I am looking the folder that I setup the sync to, but cannot find what I need.  Is this a 2000 issue?  TIA

Re: Sync w Outlook 2000

That seems to be a common problem with 2000, have you tried updating your outlook to a newer version? Storm seems to have alot of problem syncing with outlook and the desktop manager

If someone helped you give them kudos. Research all info!

Re: Sync w Outlook 2000

I was trying not to upgrade if possible due to needing Access 2000 and not wanting to spend the $$$$$ for the newest officeware.

Re: Sync w Outlook 2000

If I recall correctly, Desktop Manager version 4.2, Service Pack 2 was the last verison to support Outlook 2000.


I know for a fact that 4.3, 4.5, 4.6 and 4.7 do not. 


You either need to downgrade your DM, or upgrade your Outlook.
