    I just got my Visor, and am wondering if anyone has advise on which platform is better to use for my desktop interface: Outlook or the Palm Desktop. I have been using Netscape Communicator for email, addresses, and browsing for a couple of years and know that you can sync w/ Communicator via the Palm Desktop, but I'm wondering if I should switch to Outlook to make the synching easier.

    Also, Outlook seems to have more functions (like automatic calendar reminders) and easier compatibility w/ other Office programs that would be nice. But do those benefits outweigh having to learn a new email/address system, as well as the increased hazards from all the Outlook viri out there. Any opinions???

    Not to give Microsoft too much credit but I'm a pretty big fan of Outlook 2000. They made a heap of improvements.

    The program isn't that difficult to pick up and it has a routine that will import contacts and calenders from other PIMs. The synching is terrific. Whether I make changes to my Visor or to Outlook, the update is seamless at both ends when I synch.

    The only downside I've found is the Visor won't synch with sub folders below the contacts or inbox. I often catagorize people an put them into subfolders for easy finding. But that's my only complaint.

    Hope that helped.

    thanks for the info. Have you tried the Palm desktop (or any other email/organizer platform)? I'll probably go w/ Outlook, but still curious about the relative capabilities. Outlook seems to have the most complete addressing capabilities of any of the programs I've looked at so far.
