    Note that some PDAs come bundled with a synchronization software for PC that
    supports only Outlook (not even Outlook Express), and with a CDROM and
    licence to install Outlook (Toshiba PDAs for example, running on Windows

    The synchronization uses Microsoft ActiveSync, which uses its native support
    for Outlook local folders only (does not work if you have something else
    than a standard POP3 account configured or a private Exchance account,
    because it won't synchronize other types of Outlook folders like HTTP on MSN
    or Hotmail... despite it's also a Microsoft product).

    And there's nothing for Mac users.

    Well you're free to buy other PDAs, or to buy and install other
    synchronization software for your PDA. Synchronization still lacks good
    standards, like instant messaging and chat, or management of personnal
    calendars or contact lists...

    May be there's something in Sun's Open-Office that can connect you to
    Windows CE PDAs or other types of PDAs?
