I am looking for some advice on this one.  I have a mix of 5 Windows Mobile phones which are Motorola Q's (Windows Mobile 5) and HTC PPC6800's (Windows Mobile 6.0).  I have a Groupwise 7.1 server.  I am looking for a way to sync these phones to the server while out of the office.  I know that I can setup an Exchange Server that syncs to Groupwise, but then I have the extra cost of a server and maintenance.  I believe that I may be able to use Goodlink to do this as well?  Any advice is greatly appreciated.

You can sync with Groupwise, but you need to buy a 3rd party utility called Intellisync .

No free sollution exists to sync.

It's free for GroupWise users with current upgrade protection and GroupWise 7.1 or later.  

It's GroupWise Mobile Server (powered by Intellisync)

 I believe that intellisync only works if the device is in the cradle attached to a PC.  I want to be able to sync out in the real world over the 1X and EVDO technologies back to my server.

 Is there a 3rd party utility that has to be installed on the phone for GMS or do I just configure ActiveSync like I am syncing to an Exchange server and GMS takes care of the translation on the server side?

Groupwise Mobile Server has a client piece, just like the goodlink product would have.  It can be loaded over-the-air or by cradle/cable sync.

ActiveSync is a client piece too, FYI - it's just bundled in by Microsoft instead of being a separate download.
