Just ordered a 650 from sprint and looking for suggestions for necessity software/ apps.

I will be syncing w/ MS Outlook 03, what’s the best software to use w/ MS Office & Outlook?

Do I go with a third party solution or is the included software the way to go.

I'll be using Outlook for calendars, tasks, and contacts. I will not be able to sync for email w/ my company's server for the foreseeable future.

Any recommendations on needed utilities such as back up etc...

Thanks in advance!
