MobileMe Control Panel 1.3

Apple has released version 1.3 of the MobileMe Control Panel for Windows. The panel is a required tool for users wanting to sync and manage MobileMe and iDisk in Windows. In the update, improvements have been made to the speed of contact and calendar sync between MobileMe and Microsoft Outlook.

The software now also performs an automatic sync of changes made to contacts and calendars via Outlook or the web; syncs in progress are signaled by a new tray icon. MobileMe Control Panel 1.3 is a free download from Apple's support pages, and requires Windows XP Home or Professional SP2, or Windows Vista SP1. The update is 2.27 MB in size.

    What I liked was...

    I liked MobileMe had also compatibility with Linux(specially the iDisk) and also with windows Exchange direct by https, without the need to install something on a Windows PC vulgarly on the Work and with proxy access to the web.

    Maybe is just I alone that fell that... :-(

    No exchange support

    I never could get exchange support to work with mobile me. I could get the stupid thing to sync with Outlook, but not my Exchange account at work, but a separate account that had nothing in it. Thus, completely useless for most users.

    Of course, the Mac side wasn't much better. The only way I could get iCal to sync and stay synced (without giving me lame-a** "There's a corruption, fix it yourself and try it again" errors was to literally kill all my calendars and start completely empty.

    So far, so good! Then again, I hope I don't ever need to know what I did any time in the past...

    Re: No exchange

    Is it broken? No, because it doesn't exist.

    Straight from Apple's support site:

    "MobileMe allows you to sync your contacts and calendars with Microsoft Outlook, unless Outlook is configured to use Microsoft Exchange Server. In this situation, syncing your Outlook data with MobileMe is not supported."

    And it continues:
    "MobileMe Control Panel for Windows 1.2 or later will automatically turn off syncing with Outlook for you if you had it setup previously. This text appear when it detects that you are using Outlook with an Exchange Server:"

    So, yes because I could not get Exchange to work, and went to the extra effort of checking with Apple, who also says it WILL NOT WORK, I took the huge jump to say it doesn't work.

    Do you even own a Mac? And if so, why? You are constantly trashing Apple and its products. You are always negative when it comes to anything Apple. Yet you claim to be a user. That doesn't make any sense. Your presence in a forum like this only computes if you are a lying troll. With your attitude toward Apple it's the only logical conclusion.
