I have a personal blackberry that I would like to sync up with  my work outlook calendar.
Is this as simple as isntalling the Desktop Manager on my computer and configuring Intellisync or what can I do?

I don't want work email or anything else on it just the calendar,

    Yes, we do this in our organization.  use the BB software and it will pull contacts, calendar tasks and others from outlook to your BB

    Yes, all you should have to do is install the desktop software (assuming intellisync) and configure for Outlook, the settings are in the help file for the software, but it's pretty straight forward. post back if you have any issues.

    Go into the desktop software and double click on intellisync.  At which point you can go into "configure PIM" and "Configure email", and set which settings you would like to use.  But, if I may, why don't you want the email on your BB?  Just the annoyance factor of it?

    Guys, thanks for you comments, my org doesn't use BlackBerry. I know how to istall and configure them using the BES Server. But it will automatically attached to the outlook profile, right, hence my dilema.

    Since this a personal device and I can't use it for email, I thought I could at least use it for calendar.

    Is it the same process anyhow, just select only the calendar for syncing?

    yes, if that's all your wanting then just uncheck the other options for syncing. That's all our corp gals use them for really. The guys in our corp use all features for the geek factor. lol
