    Droid owner here.

    I am going crazy with the poor Exchange integration on the Droid. Calendar invites show up as emails, not calendar invites I can Accept/Reject. Also, there is no elegant folder management for email.

    Can an Eris owner describe how this experience is on the Eris? Can you manage folders and subfolders for email (just as in your Outlook)? Can you send and receive calendar invitations using your Exchange calendar?

    I might return my Droid and get an Eris just for this features.

    Thank you!

    the htc sync software syncs your calender with the eris calender as long as you link it to your pc everyday.

    With the Eris Exchange ActiveSync, you get a meeting request that allows you to accept or decline the invite. You can edit the note in your response or send it without editing, similar to how you would respond in Outlook.

    That's how it is for me as well. I left Blackberry for the Droid Eris and so far no complaints. The wireless active sync has been great, I hated syncing with a USB cable. 1 week and counting.:):)

    Thank you davbak. Wow! That is precisely what I (and everyone who uses Exchange) need.

    Thanks for taking the time to upload the pic.

    Cheers.

    Any way to put an icon on one of the Eris desktop screens that would allow you to go straight to the ActiveSync scheduler or a "Sync Now" icon? I don't like to waste battery power having the Eris continually synching with the Exchange server. I prefer to do it manually.
