    OK, this is a rather noob sounding question, so no flaming please. I had one of the original iPhones, and had been relegated to the world of Blackberry after only 6 months. That sentence is coming to an end.:) I have been using a 3rd party exchange host (Mailstreet) and it has been working great. When (not if) I switch back to the iPhone, is there any solution as efficient as the exchange I am used to? Or, do I just continue with the Mailstreet service. The wireless syncing between my iPad, iPod Touch, desktop (Outlook for Mac2011) and future-former Blackberry have been seamless. I don't want to loose that.
    Is there a definitive blog regarding this type of stuff?

    Look at Google email/calendar - it can be set up as Exchange on iOS devices, not sure about Outlook for Mac (I use IMAP) and everything syncs fine.

    iCloud may also be an option, see
    It mentions Outlook on PC, not sure about on Mac.

    Worst case, keep your Mailstreet
