    New Droid X Owner

    Hi All;

    I traded up from the Blackberry Storm 2, to the Droid X. Going through the growing pains now...

    The thing that grypes me the most, is that I can't sync with Outlook, with purchasing an yearly subscription application. (~$40) I almost turned around and brought it back to Verizon, however cooler heads prevalied.

    Any recommendations on the best application for this? I've seen the Google app, and Companionlink.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I use Gmail to handle my pop3 accounts that I use Outlook for on my PC. Google calendar also syncs my Outlook Callendar. Here's a writeup I did for a battery saving thread, but it will give you some info about using Gmail for all your emails (and it will save you some battery power):
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    Emails: I don't know what email app you use, but try this. It saves battery power and in some cases emails arrive quicker. This scheme will have you using only the Gmail app on the phone for all email accounts whether they are pop3 accounts or Gmail. Go to the Google Gmail inbox on your computer and log into the Gmail account. On the top right of the screen is an option called Settings. In there is an option to have the Gmail program poll your regular, non-Gmail accounts (From the inbox; Settings/Accounts & Import/ Check mail using POP3). Provide the email address and the password. The Google Gmail program will then poll your other accounts on a frequency from 1-5 minutes and push the email immediately to your phone. The polling frequency is determined by each account's activity - more emails = faster polling. This saves battery power because on the android OS pop3 accounts are polled at a frequency of 1-30 minutes and that really eats battery. Because the phone goes and checks those accounts for mail whether there is mail there or not.
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    Oh, if you were talking about an exchange account, then use Touchdown for that. It's in the market.

    Here's a link to a thread by Abe21599 and it is great: : New To Android? DROID X USERS CHECK THiS OUT!

    Enjoy and good luck.
