    Any OWA email sync/push email options possible for the Dare?

    So I just moved from TMO to VZW. I LOVE the awesome coverage and signal strenth. I do however miss the ability to sync my email from my OWA website. Can the Dare do this? If so, how?
    TIA!

    For consumer email (POP3 & IMAP) use Mobile Email.
    To sync with an exchange server use Remosync.
    Both of these programs can be downloaded from Media Center.

    Thanks fo the reply. Doesn't look like RemoSync will work with OWA. I will be taking the Dare back as I can not go without being able to sync my Outlook contacts and Calendar at a minimum. Is going with a PDA/Smartphone from VZW the only way?

    What does that mean, exactly? Nothing works with "OWA" except a Web browser. OWA is just a GUI to access email on an Exchange server with a web browser. You want something that will sync your email, contacts, and calendar with an Exchange server? That is exactly what RemoSync does. You weren't looking at RemoMail, were you? Different product.
    Check this out.

    I have the Env2, and work for myself. I use on my own computer Outlook. I would love to sync my phone with my outlook. Could I use Remosync? I keep hearing about Bitpim, but don't understand it either.

    I am am a little bit techi savvy, but when I don't want to do things that might "brick" my phone.

    Since you work for yourself and only mention Outlook I'm guessing you don't have access to an Exchange server. RemoSync is only designed to directly access an Exchange server. It would do nothing for you.

    BitPim is a different story. It is OpenSource and free and I believe the latest version does support the enV2. With BitPim you could import from Outlook your contacts and calendar and then write them to your cell phone via a USB cable or bluetooth. This is a manual process so your cell phone would only be in "sync" with your Outlook based on the last time you performed this procedure.
    Email is also a different story since none of the Verizon "feature" phones contain a native email client. The only way to get email on your enV2 phone would be through downloading a GIN app. I use Mobile Email for $5 a month but there are a couple other clients. BitPim does not "sync" email.
    The only way I could see you being able to use RemoSync is through a third-party service like Mail2Web or something similar.

    PS. I should have said the only way to get email with a dedicated email client is through downloading a GIN app. You could access your email through the web browser but that is much too cumbersome for my tastes but some people swear by it.
