I am looking for a way to sync a plam or pocket PC (handheld) to exchange from a mac.  Is there any third party software that would do this with a handheld exchange. This is very important and needs to be address rather quickly at my company.

Found zilch for Exchange. Closest I found was for Entourage which does you no good. http://www.versiontracker.com/php/search.php?mode=basic&action=search&str=palm+entourage&plt%5B%5D=macosx&x=13&y=8

There are plenty of software options that would allow you to sync with a mac.
...but judging from the two responses above I may have misinterpreted your question.

A friend of mine has used the "missing sync" from http://www.markspace.com/ and has had no difficulties transferring files between his Palm and his iMac.

If you happen to be using Classic, this might be something to consider.

I use Missing Sync with my tungsten and with PalmOS Devices the only things it really supplies are Internet Connection Sharing and the ability to mount your memory cards through the PDA.  Syncing with exchange itself is another issue entirely.

About the only software on a Mac that plays even remotely nicely with Exchange are Entourage and, (if you're the roll-your-own-software type) Ximian Evolution.  Of the two there is no MacOS Palm Conduit for Evolution but there IS one fo Entourage released by Microsoft (if you're using Office v. X).  You can get the conduit from the MacBU site http://www.mactopia.com
