I apologize for starting a new thread on this, but this is ripping the life out of me and there are way too many apps out there (and way too much knowledge in here) for this answer to not be too much neater. I find it just plain silly that nearly six months into Android 2.0+ I'm STILL experiencing heartburn keeping my information synced between Outlook and my Droid! Based on previous posts of mine, let's just work under one assumption here--let's just pretend for the sake of ground rules that I just plain don't WANT to sync any other way than through USB, and my PIM/E-mail client is Outlook.
I'm curious what other people have found, and I'm curious if anyone is actually happy. I spent the money on the Missing Sync and CompanionLink, and I'm getting ready to drop some cash on MyLink. I try the Misisng Sync every time they update it, but while it makes it through my contacts it pukes on "Groups" and gets no farther, (even though I only have one Outlook mailing list, and it only has 20 entries in it)...and tech support was no help, so that seems to have been a waste of money. I'm having success with CompanionLink, but it just bothers me for some reason I can't explain that it's information doesn't coexist perfectly with the native Droid apps (like the calendar and contacts), and I've had some problems with that. And as far as MyLink, I just want to be pretend that I have an Exchange server even though I don't, and I want (even limited) access to my home e-mail Inbox and Folders, of which I have way to many.
This is killing me. I love my Droid. If polygamy was legal in my state I'd be taking it to Vegas before the day was out. But for the love of God, when I find myself wondering if I should have gotten a Crackberry for my information, I know things are not right with the world!
