That means the software won't have many of the corporate-mail/Outlook/Notes/etc. Settings available within the PC-version of BlackBerry Desktop Manager. Specifically, there will be no Entourage/Outlook settings available to tweak or modify. (Think: e-mail signatures, reconciliation settings.) 'We've worked very hard to ensure that all the sync features are there,' according to Feldman. The real focus in the first release of RIM's new Mac software is really on consumers and their syncing needs, he says. BlackBerry Desktop Software for Mac will be compatible with Apple PCs running Mac OS Leopard 10.5.5 and higher. And users will need to be running BlackBerry device software version 4.2 or higher to employ it, Feldman says.
