Setup Versamail with Outlook 2000

I have plus.net and compuserve accounts set up in Outlook 2000 but can't synchronise these with my LifeDrive. Versamail Account Setup detects a postmaster plusnet e-mail address on Outlook Express (I don't use Outlook Express, so don't know why this appears. But it detects neither my clare@ plus net account not compuserve accounts that are set up in Outlook. I tried setting them up manually on the LifeDrive, and tried a hotsynch - no mails from Outlook appeared in LifeDrive. I deleted the accounts on LifeDrive and tried setting up on the PC in Hotsynch, Custom, Versamail, Change, Add account ... e-mails still didn't appear on the LifeDrive. I've tried this with it set to synch past 7 days and past 0 days and neither works. Any ideas how I'm meant to set this up?

Re: Setup Versamail with Outlook 2000

I use Versamail with my web-based, non-work email account (which is what it sounds like you have - web-based at least). I don't sync Versamail, I just use it to dial in to my account and download/send emails.

Re: Setup Versamail with Outlook 2000

This would likely occur if the M$ I-Explorer is configured for OE as the default Email application. To inspect and change, ope IE, select Tools/ Internet Options/ Programs. Change the Email selection to app currently utilized.

Treo 650 is not syncing with outlook calendar, but syncing with everything else.


You may have tried Exchange ActiveSync in VersaMail When you setup an Exchange ActiveSync account in VersaMail, you are asking your Treo to synchronize email and your calendar with an Exchance 2003 server. In order to prevent duplicates, VersaMail disables Calendar synchronization via HotSync while the account exists on your Treo. So if you are an Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) user, you have a choice; you either sync wirelessly or you can delete the EAS account in VersaMail and can then sync your Calendar via HotSync. You cannot do both unfortunately.

Calendar Not Syncing


OK. Hope this helps you because it fixed my problem. Go into palm desktop. Go to hot sync, click on custom Go to Calendar (Outlook) and double click on that. At this point click on settings. Under conflict resolution choose "outlook wins". Then go out and check syncronize files and set as default. Click done and this should resolve the issue. Reply if this is confusing.

Hotsynch manager does not list mail as a synch task


When you first install Palm Desktop, you have a choice of synchronizing with Palm Desktop or with Outlook.

It sounds like you chose Palm Desktop.

You have to uninstall Palm Desktop and Reinstall it.

There will be an option to synchronize with Outlook/Versamail so make sure to choose that.

No synchronization when Outlook express is default mail program


Email synch is based on current MAPI preferences. The problem you have is that the VersaMail conduit assumes your mail client must be the MAPI default email client. You could adopt another profile in Outlook instead of OExpress which picks up the account you use in OE. This is the first instance of this problem I have ever heard of so I doubt if PalmOne would make a software change on this.

Is possible to sync only a specific folder of Outlook?


Yes - you can specify which folders. By default the VersaMail conduit synchronizes the Inbox folder from your Outlook/Exchange account. If you do just as you mentioned creating a MyPalm folder, you will be able to have only that folder synchronize. Open up the Custom menu item from the HotSync icon. From there select the VersaMail conduit and double click it. Select the account from the dialog that appears - if you have multiple VersaMail accounts, the one to choose is your Outlook profile name. Then click on the Advanced button. Choose the rightmost tab which is called Folders. Here you can individually select the folders which do and which do not synch. Turn the Inbox folder to No and turn the MyPalm folder the Yes. That is it.

How do I update my palm with outlook???


1. make sure Outlook is running on the PC 2. make sure hotsync is running - right click on the hotsync icon in the system tray - click custom - set all the things you "want" to sync and setup the way you want them (i.e. handheld over rides PC, they both sync, etc) 3. have VersaMail configured and setup as well...that's where your Outlook mail will come from 4. Push the hotsync button on your cable/cradle This should get you started. If I missed a step, it should be obvious in the Hotsync log, so check the log after doing a Hotsync.

Treo 650 from Cingular is not hotsyncing with Outlook Calendar?


Have you setup an EAS account in VersaMail? The VersaMail application on your Treo 650 supports Exchange ActiveSync, which allows synchronization of Email and Calendar wirelessly with Exchange Server 2003. If an EAS account exists on the handheld the Calendar conduit will disable itself to avoid duplicates. Go to VersaMail on your Treo650 Select Menu: Accounts: Account Setup Check to see if any EAS accounts exist on the device by selecting and account, then Edit... One the first screen check Mail Service. Do any of them say "Exchange Activ..." If yes you'll need to delete that account to sync calendar entries.
