I believe you need to un-install the Palm software and then re-install it - make sure you use the Custom Install - as that is where the "Sync to Outlook" box is to be checked

I have a T5 and assume it's the same, but try putting your software install disk in your new PC at work. One of the options is to change sync with Palm Desktop and Outlook.

Is Palm Desktop Required when using Outlook?


to be able to hotsync with outlook u need to install the Palm Dektop, and while installing check the option synchronize with outlook. this will install conduits that make the hotsync with outlook possible, and don't forget that only the conatcts, calendar, memos and tasks are synchronized with outlook, the rest (if it is interisting u ) will be synchronized with the PDS. good luck

Can't synch Outlook Calendar Appointments


Try uninstalling with Windows Uninstall Clean-up tool. XP seems to do a poor job of installing conduits sometimes. I think this might be an issue with the one conduit no being registered correctly in the Windows Registry. You can get this tool here: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=290301 Uninstall Palm Desktop. Then shut down the PC. Then start it up again and re-install Palm Desktop. I hope this helps.

Cannot SYNC Outlook Calendar and Contacts


Probably one of these issues - your data is there but you are looking in the wrong place. I am trying to sync my outlook calendar and contacts via Hotsync on a Palm IIIc. It gives me the status of OK, but nothing shows up on the Palm. I have set the custom on Hotsync to desktop overwrites handheld, but still will not work. Thanks.

How do I NOT HotSync with Outlook?


Insert the installation CD and select Change your synchronization method. If that doesn't work, or the option is not available, in Windows, click Start>Run then D:\English\PostInstall\OutlookSwitcher.exe /palm (where D: is your CD drive AND your install CD is inserted; also check to make sure the file is at that location).

Override


What you're talking about is what is called a "collision" when it comes to syncing devices. You use the options in the hotsync manager to decide how to handle collisions.

Open Palm Desktop.
Go to Hotsync->Custom
Pick the outlook calendar conduit
Select if you want to synchronize intelligently, have outlook overwrite the handheld, or have the handheld overwrite outlook.

Typically if the treo detects both records on outlook and on the treo, and you've set it to synchronize intelligently, it will make dupliate records and post a message at the end of the hotsync operation.

Won't sync to clean Palm


It may be due to a permissions issue on the workstation running the hot sync program

Sync fails with "too many open databases"


This is what I did to fix that error:

Hard-reset your Palm to erase all data (that usually involves pushing the small "reset" button on the back, then pressing the "power on" button until the device boots, and then pressing "up" to confirm the hard-reset)


After that, sync your palm. The sync software will ask if you want to use your existing profile or create a new one. Create a new one. Then the program will offer to sync your Outlook profile with your Palm. Click on "ok", and a message asking you to accept to sync your Outlook data with more than one profile will pop-up. Click on OK, again... and that's it!
