Outlook Email Set-up with Droid

I have been trying to research this with no luck so here goes:

My small company uses Godaddy.com's webmail (email.secureserver.net) for our e-mail services. My work PC has outlook 2007 set up to pull (and delete) messages from the godaddy server via pop/smtp. We have a limited amount of space on godaddy (50mb) so I elected to have outlook delete the mail as it is downloaded to avoid maxing out my space. For the past 2 years, I have had a vx6800 with verizon wireless sync on my pc to monitor my outlook and duplicate it on my phone. This has worked great because everything I do on my phone is duplicated on the pc and vice versa (only a few limited issues that seemed to be glitches in the system).

Here is my question:
Since getting the droid last week, I have been unable to duplicate this e-mail set-up. I found a way to have my godaddy account forwarded to gmail, but it takes a long time for the mail to get to me and once it is on the droid, it is not duplicated on my pc so there is a lot of double e-mails, no log of the sent items, none of my file folders from outlook, etc. I really like the other functions of the Droid, but this e-mail situation is killing me. I am really considering going back to a wm based phone like the htc imagio. any anyone help me out with this e-mail problem? If you could provide detailed info as to how to set up the e-mail on the droid that would be excellent.

Thanks in advanced.

Re: Outlook Email Set-up with Droid

At this time there's not a solution that I'm aware of for your issue. The way you are doing it now is probably the best way to go about it until someone develops an app to sync directly with outlook. If your business needs wont let you wait for an app you might be better off with a BlackBerry which is known for it's awesome email management capabilities.

Re: Outlook Email Set-up with Droid

Just upgrade your godaddy email to unlimited storage and then use IMAP email. I do that and everything stays synced on my phone, laptop, desktops, etc. I think its around $150 per year for 10 boxes.

Re: Outlook Email Set-up with Droid

If IMAP resolves the e-mail problems, what do you do to get the Contacts, Task, Notes, etc that currently reside in Outlook to not only go over to GMail, but then stay in Sync with Outlook?

I could not get GMail to import the Contacts - it kept getting caught in an endless loop and never created the CSV file to Import. Even if it does, I can't keep importing manually each time a Contact changes on the Droid on PC.

I am probably going to take the Droid back, because it really is NOT compatible with Outlook running peer-to-peer. Perhaps Exchange works, but I got rid of that to simplify. It would be a real pain to reload all of that again! Any suggestions or Apps that I missed? Thanks
