    anyone tried it yet? how's entourage? does it sync well with your visor?

    i really want to make the upgrade, but entourage is a big part of that decision, and if they don't sync, then i'll rethink...

    ok.

    so i've got office 2k1 now and after some problems (word and quark seem to have some issues) i've got it running relatively smoothly. entourage is a great app, in my not entirely fully tested opinion, but it took a while to get it to sync with my visor properly... here's the deal, i kept getting duplicates, either in entourage, or the visor or both, and i can't remember the combination i finally used in the conduit manager to rectify it, but i'm down to just a couple of datebook duplicates. i think part of the problem is action names, and how the icons/contact links essentiall rewrite themselves into notes for desktop viewing. in any case, i'm slightly worried that somewhere along the way it will happen again, and man, what a pain. i've downloaded the crippleware undupe, but don't want to pay for it if the issue is fixed now, and i won't need it. sadly with the holiday rush, i don't have the time to fart around trying all different extension/hotsync/whatever configurations. hmmm...

    any thoughts/experiences with macffice2k1 and visor combos?

    i'm running macos8.5 by the way, syncing with my ovdx.

    the entourage import from palm desktop and outlook express was fanatstic, too. i had to deal with duplicates in the address book, but that was why i wanted the app in the first place. email addresses change so often, and i never knew whose address i had in oe and whose in my visor, and now, they all sync beautifully. also, multimail seems to work well with entourage. i just redirected the script to entourage instead of oe and it works beautifully.

    anyway, my previous ms experience has been spotty at best, and i just don't want this to get fouled up after it's too late, i.e.: ii stop syncing with palm desktop, and one day some catastrophe happens in a sync, and it's over.

    so any thoughts comments warnings are very very welcome.

    ooooooohhhhhh!!!!!!!

    i take it back... upon closer inspection, the sync has done some serious corruption to the address book database on the vdx. specifically, removed a number of categories and strangely, a number of addresses from contacts that previously had them.

    anyone have any words of advice to offer. i really like the potential of entourage... so much that i just might kill myself without it. ok, not that much, but ooooooohhhhh!!

    the support maze at mactopia is enough to drive me mad, so i haven't done it yet. i have for the moment (at least till i get more time to futz with the whole stinking mess) gone back to oe5 and palm desktop (which has a prettier if slightly less useful interface)

    say moderators, can you move this thread to troubleshooting?

    For the time being, let's keep it here as it sounds more like a MacOS problem than a Visor one. If that changes, I'll be glad to move it.
