Droid 2 Sync with Outlook like the BB.....
Have heard yes and no, the Verizon guy said the Droid 2 will sync with Outlook (calendar, contacts, tasks, email, etc) just like my Tour.
Will the Droid 2 sync with Outlook and will I get my email just like on the BB?
I want to switch but syncing and email could be a deal breaker....
Please help/advise. Thanks.

I amnot on a corporate email, I have comcast and have it download to Outlook and syncs with my BB that I want to ditch in replace with a Droid.
My issue is soooo many people have my comcast email address, and I am so comfortable working an syncing by BB with outlook, I only want to change phones and and not both.

Anyone know if the fascinate on Verizon does push corporate through lotus Noyes with an exchange server?

I think you're going to get a lot of different responses, and YMMV with each.
Touchdown if you have an Exchange Server -- but I don't think you do. You use Outlook client, which is fine. But like the FiOS folks, I think comcast mail is still all POP3. So once your Outlook client downloads an email from the comcast servers, it'll be gone from their servers (there may be an option to leave a copy on the server, but that just complicates things in this case).
Are you using Verizon's sync client? That might have been the workaround to using BIS (because effective use of BIS would mean an IMAP server). But it's also very kludgy in that your desktop has to relay all your email (so if your router or network or desktop goes down, you don't get any email on your phone either).
There's not a lot of "easy" (and good) options unless you're pretty tech savvy.
Is there a server-side GMail sync that can pull your email there (I still don't use GMail enough)? Then you're almost home-free.
