    I copied this from the manual:

    Synchronize with Microsoft™ Office
    Outlook™
    If you use Microsoft™ Office Outlook™ on your work
    computer, your phone can synchronize emails, and
    events with your Microsoft™ Exchange server.
    Find it: Menu > Settings > Accounts & sync > Add
    account > Corporate
    1 Enter your user name (username@company.com),
    password, email address, and server details
    including domain name and security type (server
    address is the same URL you use to access your
    company’s email using the Web on your computer).
    Note: Contact your business IT department for
    server details.
    2 Touch Next.
    3 Set up your sync options: select email, contacts, or
    calendar.
    4 Touch Save & sync.

You would enter your user name, password, mailbox name. What I can't get over is that Droid will be able to sync e-mail and calendar and contacts. BIS BB couldn't do that, and I'll never understand why. It's been a major pain not having access to my calendar up-to-date. Contacts I can live with as I sync those to the home computer and can update them that way. But I want my work calendar AND personal calendar on my device and I want them to be seperate (don't want personal stuff showing up on my work calendar) AND I want them to be up-to-date.

    I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on this phone! Part of me wants to wait it out a bit and see how it goes...part of me can't stand the thought!

    With this setup. I shoul dbe able to sync with both work and home without any trouble. Nice thanks for the info

    fegriffith ... that's exactly what I'm talking about! Thanks! Now, I wonder, wonder, wonder about yahoo. SHould be pushed, too, but is OK if not. I started to migrate everything (calendars and contacts, etc) over to google. Just now am getting an appreciation for google and all its services. Google knows all. I bow to the google gods.

    It does seem that we are going to Google once this device comes out

    Greetings! Current (but soon to be former) Storm user here as well. Hopefully making the switch to the DROID if I can dial one in on Friday. Been a Blackberry user for my life, have my life hosted by Google, so I think the DROID will be the right fit!
