Sync Treo 650 with Outlook (work) and Palm Desktop (home)



  • 1. TIP: Using Yahoo PIM instead of Palm Desktop - COOL
    I started using Yahoo's free PIM tools (Calendar, Notes, Address Book, etc) and find it as a nice alternative to the Palm Desktop. Some benefits: - Off-site backup - Can sync to several devices (more than one Palm/PocketPC) - All your info is available via web - Can view all PIM info from Cons: - Your potentially private info is now on the web - Doesn't have a one-one relationship to all Palm fields but it's quite good Check it out.. It includes a free Intellisync conduit to sync to Palm/PPC. Also nice if you add the Yahoo toolbar in Explorer, which can give you instant access to the PIM tools. I likely.
  • 2. Syncing to Windows 2003 Server?
    Hi - I sync to a PC Outlook on Windows 2003 Server. Turns out that Chapura Pocketmirror does not support Windows 2003 - everything syncs except for my calendar. I'm running the latest PM, reordered how syncing works so that calendar/addressbook/etc are sync'ed first. Chapura offers no work around. Does anyone sync to Windows 2003 Server and Outlook? I do not have Windows XP so I can't host Palm Desktop and PM on another box. thanks Tim
  • 3. Greek on Palm
    I would like to be able to write Greek on my Palm. I am considering Paragon Software's, Greek Piloc. My question is, can this be used, e.g., Greek graffiti, without changing the localization of my Palm to Greek? I just want to make use of Greek fonts and graffiti. I've received no response from either Palm or Paragon. Anyone?? Michael

I use Outlook 2000 at work and no PIM at home (Outlook Express, but that 
does not count..).

I just bought a Treo 650 (delivery tomorrow).  How do I sync with Outlook at 
work (my contacts, calendar, tasks, notes) and Palm Desktop at home?

Is it as obvious as installing Palm Desktop at both places, with Outlook 
conduit at work and Palm Desktop calendar conduit at home?

Yep, it's just that simple. I synch with Palm Desktop at home and Outlook at 
work. You will get a warning message that the Palm has synch'd with another 
computer and this may result in duplicate information, but I've never had 
that happen.

Thanks for the reply.

How do I sync the calendar only (not contacts, tasks etc) with Outlook at 

Other than the calendar, the rest of the stuff on Outlook is work-related. 
I want to keep my personal contacts etc on the Treo 650 (synced at home with 
Palm Desktop..).

I do this by adjusting the conduits at work to only synch the calendar, todo 
and so on. I don't sync contacts with Outlook. You set this up from Hotsync 
under the Custom... menu selection when you right click on the task bar icon 
for Hotsync.

Hope this helps

3.Maintain data home and work Outlook data separate but combine on Treo 650

I have a Treo 650 with a Palm OS.  I would like to maintain my home
Outlook calendar, contacts, tasks and notes and separately maintain my
work calendar, contacts, tasks and notes on each PC but sync both of
them to show on my Treo.  (I sync my home info with my husband and
don't want all my personal info on my work computer).  I also use
multiple categories for tasks on both PCs (close to the 15 category
max on the Palm each).  Is there a way to setup this up, maybe
switching between profiles or something?

4.Outlook Treo 650 Palm HotSync OLERR lookup table

Where do I get advice on what these Outlook to Palm synchronize errors
Are they indicating errors in Outlook (which works) or the PDA (which
won't sync)?

HotSync operation started for donna on 12/21/05 19:54:07
Outlook Calendar
- Recovery Sync
Outlook Calendar synchronization failed

These were cut directly out of the PalmSource Outlook conduit HotSync
6.0.1 file:

The really frustrating thing about these messages is the hotsync used
to work on this new Verizon Treo650 Palm PDA cellphone and then stopped
all of a sudden. No matter how many times I reboot the Windows XP PC,
the PalmSource HotSync Manager 6.0.1 has been failing for more than a
week with these cryptic error codes above.

Is there a lookup table for these error codes?
Are they indicating Outlook errors (Outlook seems to work just fine) or
errors in the Palm PDA (which seems to work fine also)? It's just the
synchronization between the two that is failing. Contacts synchronize
just fine via the Treo 650 USB cable but the Outlook Calendar fails
every time (it used to work and I don't remember changing anything to
break it).

When I googled, I found someone suggested deleting the entire Outlook
profiles directory:
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application
which didn't seem to solve the problem at all (I think I got even more
error codes when I pressed the HotSync button on the Treo 650 USB cable
but I don't remember because I didn't save the original set before
deleting the profiles directory).

The Outlook profiles directory reappeared with Outlook 2003 (which
seems to work fine throughout),  and it re-created the following files:
donna_Outlook_profile.FAV 26 KB
donna_Outlook_profile.NK2 0KB
donna_Outlook_profile.srs 3KB

Do you know what these Outlook conduit Palm syncronize errors mean?

5.Transferring Palm Treo 650 Additional info into Outlook

I purchased the Chopura software to copy info into Outlook before I realized 
I could change the sync to Outlook.  Anyhow, in both cases, I was unable to 
transfer the additional info information.  It transferred all notes.  
Unfortunately, I stored alot of info in my addition info boxes.  Any thoughts 
or do I just have to manually insert all my data that is missing?
