    Just got a new 700p. Verizon told me that it would sync to my Lotus Notes. They didn't tell me I needed additional software. I see that there are many out there. Any recomendation as to which is best and why?
    Thanks

    Some version of VersaMail should either have come on the included installation CD. There are instructions for setting up with Lotus Notes on Palm's web site - I have never tried it. Let us know whether it works and how easy/hard it is to set up:

    Depending on your needs, there are two options I have tried:

    IBM Lotus EasySync Pro - Works similar to most other synch programs. Not too bad. The biggest issue I encountered was with calendar items spanning more than one day not synching well. I do not know the current pricing, but as I remember, it was about $60-$70 a copy.

    Goodlink/Good Mobile Messaging - Push solution for both the calendar, contacts and e-mail. It requires a server application (administered by your Notes administrator) and is rather intrusive - replaces the contacts, calendar, etc. with separate apps of its own. The originals remain on your device, but buttons are remapped and defaults changed. Expensive due to the server software and administration costs, but the email push is nice. There may or may not be an option for free software (there was some time back, but I am not current on their marketing). Rather buggy in certain areas and not well documented from an end-user perspective.

    If you want a single user, synch to/from PC solution, I would go with EasySync if for no other reason than it keeps you in a single-vendor mode (IBM owns Notes). I have used it for years without much complaint.

    Went tothe palm website to load the latest Versamail. Took a little to configure it. Long story short...I got the mail to come over but not my calender or contacts which is what I was really after. Called Palm support...even though Versamail is their product they knew nothing about it. As soon as they heard Lotus Notes they said thay couldn't help. Same with the Chat line and then the national support center that the chat line sent me to. The best they did ws give me number for Lotus Notes. I guess I'll have to go with one of the third party sync programs.

    I've heard that this is a subscription you have to renew every year? True? I noticed on their website you can try the software before you buy. Thanks

    Palm's attitude towards Lotus Notes is really disappointing considering IBM has a little less than half the enterprise messaging market. Palm is trying to appeal to the Exchange/Outlook users who are already mostly on WM5/6 or Blackberry.

    Anyway, EasySync Pro mostly works. I hear mNotes is more reliable. I just upgraded to Notes 8.0 and it broke my EasySync, FYI.

    I have downloaded a trial of Laplink PDAsync 4.1. Been using it for about 2 weeks now and so far its been working well. Fairly easy to set up also.

    Help!

    All computers are being changed out at my company and I will no longeer have administrative rights or be able to load any software. The corporate pda standard is a blackberry. Is there anyway to continue to use my Treo 700p for email and calendaring synchronization to Lotus Notes?

    Help!

    Is there any way to manually export Lotus Notes mail and calendar info from my work computer and then import info to a personal computer where I have full admin rights and then sync to that computer? How about autoforwarding all messages?

    I'm really dreading the idea of not being able to use my Treo and desperate!

    Is anyone using blackberry connect?.

    You should ask your IT department. They will either have to install your software for you or buy you a new phone that is compatible with their system.

    The program/service from Verizon is probably your best bet.

    You will need the program installed/configured on your PC.

    Good luck,
