    You can copy/paste in Gmail with 2.2...I am not sure about exchange or other email accounts as I only use the stock Gmail app... (it is still not the best, but it is better than current...)

    gSync for Outlook



    You are correct. I was thinking about CompanionLink. I bought this program and it worked like a charm. Thanks very much for making us aware of this. My X is due tomorrow and it synched with my Droid 1 today; yippeee.

    I used it on my D1 for many months - and I know you can guess this - but there are no changes you have to do with it when you setup your X as everything is sync'd with Google which is awesome!! Glad I could help...

    I've had a problem syncing my phone calendar to Outlook ever since upgrading to 2.0!!! Not happy about that at all. Worked fine on the original version but was told I can't go back. Now I can't trust my calendar on my phone until they do a" fix". Anyone heard when that may be?

    What if I don't use gmail for anything but to send an email from my phone from time to time. I don't use my google calendar for anything. Only use my Outlook calendar at work for both my work and personal stuff. Would what you suggest still work?

    Here is my workaround that was simple: When you create an appointment invite your google email address that you have on your phone and it will put the appointment in your droid calendar. I just named mine "Droid" in my contact list so its easy to add it to the appointment.

    I used to do the same with my blackberry because I run outlook from a server (not an enterprise server) and didn't want any synch software installed on my server.

    Sync from Outlook

    You can sync your MS Outlook to droid-X via Google. I also have 2 email accounts running so i get my emails as well in about a 10minutes dely but it works well. Sync your calendar thru google-Outllok, when you make updates to your Outlook from computer it shows on Droid with no problem..(NO COST INVOLVED OR ADDITIONAL PROGRAM)..I have Cox.net email but i had to change the port then eveyrthing was fine, (AGAIN TO COST OR ADDITIONAL PROGRAM)..The Droid-X Syncs calendar and works both email accounts perfectly like my Blackberry but not as fast but works good.

    Overcomplicating things?

    When I set up my Verizon email on my Droid 1 and my Droid X, I just entered my user ID & password & it automatically syncs every 15 minutes. My only question, which I'm looking for right now, is how to auto-delete the emails that I download to my laptop and not have to trash them manually on my X. On my old Droid, I didn't have to delete my Inbox.
