Now that Leopard has the To Do List, does anyone know how to get the tasks in Entourage to sync with the iPhone?  Entourage stores To Dos in a folder on the local computers.  I can't find a way to sync the local tasks and get them over to the iPhone.

The officially sanctioned and supported method for doing this requires that you update Office to version 11.35 (or later) and that you have an active .Mac account from Apple:

I have both of those, and I'm able to sync Address Book and Calendar.  It's the Tasks that I can't get to come because they are stored locally and not attached to one of my seven accounts.  I welcome any additional thoughts.

Apple claims to support syncing Entourage notes if you have a .Mac account (as sown in their screenshot). Just to make sure, you double-checked that the option is enabled in Entourage, under the Entourage menu > Preferences > General Preferences > Sync Services  
 - yes ?

However, syncing with the iPhone right in 10.5 simply might not work (even for Apple Mail).
See:

You might want to keep an eye on this 3rd-party product (not 10.5 - compatible as of just yet) and contact them about Notes specifically:

I still haven't found a way to make this work, so you may be right.  I'm watching e2sync.
