Problem: Updating / synchronizing calendar information from Groupwise 6.5 to Sony Ericsson P800 mobile phone calendar. There is no direct update available.

Solution: The sony ericcson uses Symbian V 7 OS and this comes with standard MS Outlook synchronisation software but none for Groupwise. The solution is:

  1. Open Groupwise 6.5
  2. Open Outlook (2002)
  3. Check that Outlook has automatically picked up the Groupwise Calendar
  4. Go into Sony Ericsson syncstation settings, tick the Calendar box and then select "force full synchronisation" under full synchronization tab
  5. Go sony ericcson synchronize function and run the synchronization progam. When asked for allowed access select the 2 minute option.

This updates the phone.
