Hello,

Thanks for using FixYa.

Here are the steps that you need to do to export your data from palm desktop to entourage.

1. HotSync the handheld with Palm Desktop to back up your data.
2. Use Disk Utility to create a disk image backup of the following directories:
1. Palm Desktop data: /users/username/Documents/Palm
2. Entourage data: /users/username/Documents/Microsoft User Data
3. In Palm Desktop: Export (file>export) all data from Palm Desktop that the user needs
4. In Entourage: Import (file>import) all data that was exported from Palm Desktop into Entourage.

This will let you export all your data from palm desktop to entourage.

I hope this helps. Thanks and have a good day.

iTunes, iBooks, and App Store content


By default, iTunes Store, iBookstore, and App Store content on your device will automatically transfer to your computer.

I started using Mac Mail today, moving from Entourage 11.4.0 to Mac Mail 1.3.11. I want to get my addresses across but have had no luck so far. I have hovered mouse over the email address and selected...


I think you mean adding email address to your account (importing email address), If you've set up the account properly, then there's not much difficultly, just follow the instructions below 1. Open the Address Book application. 2. Choose Import from the File menu. 3. Navigate to the file that you exported from your previous application and select it from the list of files. Tip: if you cannot select the file, the 4. Open button will not pulsate. This may indicate that the file is not in a format that Address Book can read. 5. Click Open. Your addresses (contacts) are now available for use in Address Book and all Mac OS X applications that work with Address Book.
On the other hand if you are importing addresses from previous version, the procedure is little different. Do let me know if you can't do with this. Good luck

I want to sync my Palm Desktop, from a TREO 650, on my iMAC to my new iphone. I was able to sync everything off the desktop except for the Palm desktop, where all my phone numbers, addresses, memos,...


The best way is to transfer the Calendar and Contacts to Outlook. The iPhone can then be synced with Outlook.

Unfortunately, tasks and memos do not transfer. You will need to find other 3rd party apps that are supported on the iPhone and transfer your data to them.

Two examples are:

1. Evernote - This is good for memo. You can export your memos and then import them into Evernote. unfortunately, when I did this, it was a bit tricky. I even had to write a little PERL script to create the format that it wanted.

2. RemembertheMilk - this is a todo application

Want to wirless syn with a calendar & contact list for back up. what is the best program to use????


You can use the BlackBerry Desktop Manager to synchronize your organizer data
(calendar entries, contacts, tasks, notes, and memos) between your BlackBerry smartphone and your Mac computer.
In order to synchronize with Microsoft® Entourage, Apple® Sync Services functionality must be turned on in the
Microsoft Entourage application. To accomplish this, complete the following steps:-
note:-Back up information and data before changing any settings on your Mac computer.
1) If the BlackBerry smartphone is connected to the Mac computer, use the Eject option to remove the BlackBerry
smartphone from the Mac computer.
2) Close the BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
3) Open Microsoft Entourage.
4) On the Microsoft Entourage menu bar, go to Entourage > Preferences.
5)Within General Preferences, click Sync Services.
To turn on contact list synchronization, select the Synchronize contacts with Address Book and MobileMe check box
To turn on calendar synchronization, select the Synchronize events and tasks with iCal and MobileMe check box
note:- When Sync Services has been enabled and the OK button is selected, a new dialog window appears with the following choices:

1)Replace Entourage items with Sync Services items.
2)Replace Sync Services items with Entourage items.
3)Merge Entourage items with Sync Services items.
For Additional Information:-
Before the BlackBerry smartphone data is synchronized with the Mac computer, verify that Sync Services is turned
on in the Mac OS X iSync application. This is done by completing the following steps:
1)Open Applications on the Mac computer and click iSync.
2)In the iSync menu, click Preferences.
3)If necessary, select the Enable syncing on this computer check box.

Migrate Palm address book to MacBook


This is a general answer to head you in the right direction, I hope. Reply back if you need more detail.

If you are syncing with Windows Palm Desktop software, you can (most likely) export contacts, calendar and memo items to a CSV file.

CSV files are data standards. They're simply text files with a comma-delimiter that designates where fields end. This makes them cross-platform compatible.

Once you export to CSV files, get them on your mac (email them to yourself, put them on a flash drive etc) and then import them into iCal, Address book etc.

Downloading contacts from Palm to iphone


Just save the contacts as described above "Bring up Palm Desktop. Make sure your Palm phone is sync'ed up. Show the Address page, select all contacts (Ctrl-A), and export them with File, Export vCard... This puts all contact information into a single file as a sequence of vCards."
Then send the file you saved as an e-mail attachment - using any mail (i.e. gmail, yahoo, outlook, etc) - to your i-phone e-mail. Open this email on the i-phone and push the attachement - it then asked you if you want to add these, click (push?) yes, and select eithr merge or new and voila you got them.
