PalmPilot Synching with Outlook, privacy concern
Posted on 2003-03-09
Please give me advice on how to deal with synching my Palm at work and maintaining some of my privacy. Please tell me how you deal with this.
I have a new job and I think I want to synch my Palm info with my Work computer. I understand Intellisynch can do a good job with Palm and Outlook. I'm concerned about private information.
I think my options are:
1. I could download appointments to my palm but not upload from my Palm.
2. I could mark some appointments or addresses as private with password protect (not too secure)
3. I could encrypt the private (#2) appointments
But I don't know which way to go.
I think I don't want to do #1 because when meetings get postponed in Outlook (as they do all the time) they would show on my Palm as two meetings. Because it’s a download not a synch.
I see DateBk4 has a Set Category Private. That looks interesting.
I will use DateBk 4/5, Shadow, and I will access Address Book through DateBk4/5.
