    It seems I found a showstopper:

    when I start my android (Hero) i am forced to a gmail account, otherwise market does not work. Since all my old data came from outlook, my calendar now ends up with at least three domains: mijn agende, Outlook and @gmail.

    How do i backup the data????

    gmail only sees the gmail domain, and presents it to big brother, who wants that
    Outlook only sees the outlook domain
    nobody sees the my calendar domain (???)

    so by sync no backup possible???

    once an appointment is saved, one cannot change the domain, so I inevitably end up with appointments I cannot see. When making an appointment the domainchoice is prone to mistake for a busy guy, who wants the PDA as help.

    The fact i have a MAC and have to suffer for it by bootcamping vista is pitty, but acceptable

    so the question is:
    can I force android calendar to a single domain
    or
    is there some app out there that syncs all to outlook
    or
    does anyone have another solution?

    Thanks to all, Dolf

    If you didn't want to use the Google 'Cloud' then why the heck did you buy and Android handset? It's what they are for.:rolleyes:

    good observation.

    But it doesn't solve or address the issue at hand.
    Cloud, sunshine or rain, any system should obey/provide basic security. Multi domain calendars are error-prone, and in this case, seem to be unmaintainable, neither blends it with posterior or anterior systems, seemingly perceived as enemy clouds? It does only help anyone but a user.
