I sync Outlook with ActCE 101 on the ePods by first using ACT2000 on the desktop and importing Outlook contacts into ACT2000 and then syncing ACT2000 with ActCE 101 on my ePods.
I see this as a temp solution until someone comes up with a way of using outlook on the ePods.
I found ActCE 101 on an Australian web site that used to be posted on the ePods software site (forgot the address) and I found an older version of Symantec ACT at a used/discount software store for $10 and used it to qualify for an $70 mail-in rebate from Interact Commerce the new owners of ACT. BTW no one is supporting ActCE 101 or the syncing to CE machines at this time (according to ACT2000 customer service).
The ePods using ActCE does not like to sync the tasks and appointments which is unfortunate and it displays some errors associated with this but other functions work OK.
