Verizon Storm, Snow Leopard 10.6.1, BlackBerry Desktop Manager Sync Fail

Hi, I have been searching for several hours and cannot find anybody with similar problems so first off sorry if i missed the answer.


I am running Snow Leopard 10.6.1 and BlackBerry Desktop Manager for Mac 1.0.0

My main mail account is an Exchange 2007 mail account, I am using iCal, AddressBook and Mail for managing my exchange account.


If i sync the 3 iCal calendars that are completely local to the Mac sync is good.

If i add my Work calendar to the mix, BDM hangs fans start running fast, system becomes unresponsive. eventually it will die on its own other times i must force quit the application.


Contacts only sync with local contacts in address book, not the contacts from the exchage account.


While writing this i suppose i could use my Entourage and sync the exchange stuff through it instead of syncing it through iCal.


Any other ideas that come to mind would be appreciated.

Hi there!

FYI -- you've posted this to the general Desktop Software forum...but BB/MAC integration is indeed special, and has it's very own forum. But, don't double-post, we will have this moved momentarily to the correct place:

That way, the right experts will have the best visibility.

Good luck!
