I've been using Outlook Express for quite some time (holds both my work email and hotmail accounts). After reading much about Outlook, I want to start using it (came with computers bundled software). Right now, I use ACT! and have a palm (Tungsten E). I'm using Memo's from Palm as my GTD Categories. While it works fine, I do like the look of the GTD Categories when using Outlook. I realize that one must purchase the $30 White Papers from this site in order to install properly. With all that said, here are some of my questions:
1. I've seen some of the "code" that people post in order to run/install these Categories properly. Must one add to that "code" when adding new categories or items to that category (that seems very painful and time consuming)? Or is creating a new category (ie, @Computer) as simple as pointing, clicking and going (similiar to creating a new Memo on the Palm)??
2. How do I sync Outlook and my Palm? Is there software (preferably Free) that allows me to do this?
3. When my Outlook Express is open and I'm viewing another document, if I get mail, whether it be work or personal, I get a mailbox icon at the bottom of my screen (toolbar) alerting me to new mail. When I attempt this with Outlook, it only alerts me (again, with icon mailbox at bottom right hand corner of computer) to my new work emails, NOT my hotmail emails. Is there a way to program it to alert me to BOTH email accounts when receiving new mail??
Thanks for your insight.
