To use outlook with android you will have to download a google calander/outlook sync addon for outlook. You then have the options to sync manualy or when you make changes.

I don't think that works for contacts though, but i'm not sure on that. You will most likely have to export your contacts and load them into your google account.

The cool thing about this is you will never have to plug your phone into the computer, you will just get the updates pushed from your gmail account.

Sorry to change the subject but will the Droid be able to open word, excel, and PDF files? I don't need to edit them but I have to be able to open and read them.

Yes it will you can download a free version of Doc to go and it will do what you need. If you get the paid version for only 14.99 for a limted time and it works just like office. This is a great buy. I paid tripple the amount for it on BB. You can find it in the market.

I just tried VCorganizer this morning and it works great for under $5.00 coming from a BB this was just the ticket for what I was looking for I keep a ton of stuff on Outlook notes and the good part about this program is it is encrypted and no third party people have to see it like on gnotes

I just recently switched from Exchange and just pointed all email addresses that I have from my domain to my gmail account.
I didn't like the fact that I managed 2 calendars.
So I just migrated everything to gmail. Not to mention gmail supports push.
the native email app for the Droid does not support push. Exchange however did, but I also understand that k-9 supports the push feature.

I am totally happy with the calendar and the tasks and the way that gmail handles everything.
The google docs is another cool feature as well. I have a lot of excel docs and word docs saved there and I can fully open them and edit them right from my phone.

I wonder if my Docs to Go license is transferable. I did pay a discounted rate for the BB version, but am afraid I'll have to pay again when the droid I bought from ebay comes in.
