Good to see that you're keeping a level head about this - perhaps it's yours
that needs the towel.
Unfortunately, many of us who use Outlook use Outlook as an interface to
Exchange Server. It's kinda more secure that way. And it means that companies
can communicate much more efficiently. So - Exchange Server is a given! There
obviously is a solution - Chris has pointed the roadmap... but it isn't
working for me (or for you) yet! Now, rather than indiscriminate ranting, why
don't we see what we can do to get a solution here, for the benefit of
everyone! That way, other heads - towelled or not - may preserve some of
their hair too!
Now - how's about some detail on your problem? How are you connecting to
these standalone PCs over Cingular?
