Question concerning hotsyncing m500 with Outlook 2003

I just received my first handheld ever from a friend. We share an office and he just bought a new palm zire and he gave me his old m500. I really like it because I was looking at buying something similar to this to help me at work. I find myself missing conference calls and what not. My question is am I able to hotsync this with outlook 2003 or not? What I would like to do is hotsync my emails, calendar, notes, addresses and pretty much everything that outlook can do. I've searched on palm one's website and they have programs that you can buy but none of them mention in the description about hotsyncing emails as well as everything else. I downloaded the palm one software for windows xp but I don't want to enter my information twice. Thanks for the help.

Lost all contacts, memos, tasks, after LifeDrive Update 1.0


This morning I downloaded LifeDrive Update 1.0, and when I did a HotSync afterwards, I got an error message saying, Handheld Tasks application database version not supported. Handheld Notes application database version not supported. Now my contacts, memos, tasks, calendar entries and possibly other items are all gone!! This is the core data that is the reason why I use a PDA! I would be totally distraught, except that the data does still seem to exist in Outlook on my PC. I am running Outlook 2002, SP3 on a WinXP machine. Can anyone help to fix this problem? thanks,

Compatablity with Exchange 2003


I believe you will have no problems. HotSync talks to the Outlook client rather than the server.

Hot sync error 8001 with MS outlook


Answers on Chapura PocketMirror errors, Chapura maintains a really good database of fixes for errors with their PocketMirror Outlook PIM conduits. Copied from the site: First, make sure you are running the latest version of PocketMirror version 3.1.7. To check which version you are currently running, please see Chapura FAQ PM089. If you are still receiving the same error after installing the latest version of PocketMirror then continue with the following steps. If Option 1 does not resolve the issue, then move onto Option 2 and so on: Option 1: Run the Outlook 2000/2002/2003 "Detect and Repair" utility (You will need the Office/Outlook CD-ROM). 1. In Outlook click "Help/Detect and Repair". 2. After the repair is complete, reboot your computer and synchronize your handheld. Option 2: If you are running Windows XP and this error is occurring, please perform the steps in Chapura FAQ PM198. Option 3: If this OLE error occurs ONLY when synchronizing with Outlook closed, then please see Chapura FAQ PM053 "Outlook Backup Add-in causes HotSync failure when Outlook is closed." Option 4: If you have a laptop computer and are running Windows 2000/Outlook 2000, this OLE error may be caused if your laptop goes into sleep/hibernate mode when Outlook is open. To fix this problem reboot your computer and try to synchronize your handheld again. In the future make sure Outlook is closed when your computer "hibernates". Option 5: Uninstall and reinstall 3rd party conduits such as the TakeNote, DayNotez, PocketQuicken, QuickWord, Quicksheet, etc. To check for these conduits: 1. Click on the HotSync Manager icon (circular red/blue arrows on the bottom right of your PC screen, see image.) Note: The HotSync Manager icon may be hidden on Windows XP, please click the round white arrow button (see image) to unhide the icon. HotSync Manager Icon Example 2. Click on "Custom". If you see any of the above mentioned program conduits listed in the "Custom" screen ABOVE the PocketMirror conduits (Outlook Calendar, Outlook Contacts, Outlook Tasks & Outlook Notes) then uninstall any of these 3rd party programs. To do this go to "Start/Settings/Control Panel" or "Start/Control Panel" and double-click on Add/Remove programs. Then reinstall these programs from the original source media. Option 6: If you are using Outlook 98/2000, please follow the steps in Chapura FAQ PM108 "How do I change Outlook from "Internet Only" to "Corporate/Workgroup" Mode?"

Update to MS Outlook 2003 causes Hotsync error


delete local user name in desperation, after removing the user name from the handheld and still not getting any results or ANY syncs, I launched Chapura Settings from My Desktop, deleted my user name, re-created my same user name, same spelling, and then everything worked first time every time. I have the latest Pocket Mirror PMStdUpdate3171.exe loaded on top of what came on the installation CD. to sum up, I deleted the user name from both handheld and PC and recreated it only on the PC, then sync'd with outlook 2003 without even a reboot. good luck

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.

HotSync Outlook 2003 with Tungsten E


I tried all the suggestions that were offered and gave up. But then out of pure craziness I loaded the treo 600 CD that came with my Treo 600 out of curiosity. It loaded and the MS Office 2003 conduits loaded nicely and the problem appears to be solved for now. So I tested and it the Tungsten E Hotsync's feature all appear to be okay. I'm not sure if this is the best solution but it solved a very frustrating problem. The version of Hotsync that loaded is 4.1.0. Hope this helps.

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.
