Palm Conduit for Entourage X Released, Yanked

Palm Conduit for Entourage X Released, Yanked -- The wait appeared to be over last week for people who wanting to synchronize the personal information on their Palm handhelds with Entourage X. Microsoft released a Palm conduit that synchronizes addresses, tasks, memos, and calendar items (but not email, unfortunately) to any handheld running Palm OS 3 or later. Shortly after the release, however, Microsoft pulled the software to address problems raised by users who installed it. As of 22-Jul-02, Microsoft has not detailed the problems encountered or offered an estimated date of arrival for a corrected version, so we recommend not installing the conduit if you happened to grab it last week.
