Problem: Syncing GroupWise to a Pocket PC (in my case an iPAQ) has always been a challenge to say the least. Until now, IntelliSync was really the only product available that would handle this, but has many limitations (NO alarms, NO file attachments).

Solution: I found a product called PortaMail 2002 made by Quartz Development ( that finally overcomes all of these limitations and is FAST. Note that this application will not win any beauty contests (the interface is very basic, and there are some font and other presentation issues with it), but it WORKS! I now have alarms, file attachments, and sync operations that take around a minute to complete. It's about time!!!

(Note - I am in no way affiliated with the developer. I am just a frustrated iPAQ user who was on a quest to find better sync software for GroupWise)
