I installed Outlook (2007) since it's the most used PIM that can sync with a BlackBerry, but I find its UI ugly, and the different dialogs contain way too much items for my use.

Does someone know of a good alternative? Ideally, it should be able to sync with BlackBerry directly, but I can live with one that goes through Outlook for synchronization.

FWIW, I prefer desktop applications to eg. Google apps.

Thank you.

When it comes to Blackberry sync, you're pretty much stuck with either Outloook or Lotus Notes (ugh). As far as I know, there is no sync support for Thunderbird.

It may or may not be what you are looking for, but the solution I was using with my BB was to run Google Sync to sync Calendar and contacts and use Blackberry push service to receive my emails from various accounts.

Thanks for the tip. I'll stick to Outlook until I find a desktop-based alternative. – OverTheRainbow Oct 15 '09 at 16:00
