Not tried this personally, but the following software claims to do the same for a Blackberry as Activesync does for an iPhone:

Might be a silly question but what's wrong with the free version of Blackberry Express?

-. alternative : BESx (BES Express) is free.
-. There are several 3rd party solutions that allow this without interfering the BES: NotifySync (http://www.notifysync.co.uk), AstraSync (formerly AstraBerry --or something like that -http://www.astrasync.com), etc.

Prices: i don't know. Both offers free trial though.

Hi,




As already suggested, the most obvious solution is BES Express.

There are some potential alternatives using a service to sync calendar and contacts etc. and use BES with OWA for email sync:

 BIS setup with OWA http://www.blackberryforums.com.au/forums/blackberry-web-client-support/560-integrate-microsoft-outlook-web-access-email-account-bis-account.html
