Still sitting on the fence between the Cacko and the pdaXrom.

Main barrier - sync to Outlook XP (calendar/contacts) at work.

Any solution/workaround please ?

Thanks
Regards
Boris.

Hi all,

I'm facing the same doubt that Borisbob has.
Is there any plan to sync to Outlook?

Hi,

I think you're having a better chance for an answer if you ask this question in the kdepim threads (software forum);

Here's my solution :

I was using outlook too, but, messing around in Ko/Pi I found out that it was much more suitable for me than outlook:
- subtodo's !!
- showing todo's in calendar view !!
- and a lot of other minor reasons
So I decided to install Ko/Pi and Ka/Pi on my win2k and I haven't regretted it one moment.
So if possible, i suggest you leave outlook and switch to Ko/Pi on Windows.

About syncing :
I've set up a samba connection to connect my Z to my PC.
I mounted my win2K to my Z (to /mnt/jobcomp in my case)
I can easily sync Ko/Pi on my Z to Ko/Pi on win2K using the "local file" option and selecting the file on /mnt/jobcomp.

Good luck,
Chero.

Chero, thanks for the advice !

One problem though - that can work for ToDos and Contacts,

but what do you do with all the people at work who keep sending you Outlook appointments ?!

Chero,

thanks a lot for your time and advice.
But in my case is mandatory to use Outlook.
