Windows Mobile Calendar Weirdness: Outlook Overrides Smartphone Changes

This Windows Mobile Calendar problem happens all the time to me ever since Microsoft removed the two-way conflict resolution option. Here’s the scenario.

1. Create an appointment on a WiMo smartphone

2. Sync it to Outlook 2003 (or 2007)

3. After syncing, edit the appointment and change it to a different day (i.e., reschedule it)

4. Resync it with Outlook

In my case, the rescheduled appointment is removed and replaced with the original appointment from Outlook. Really annoying.
