    My MM experience has been great so far. email, Cal, Contacts syncing to iphone/ipad/imac.

    Keep seeing the message to upgrade the Cal portion of this? Has anyone done this yet? Any issue? or is this more of a, if it works fine now, why risk it type of thing.

    I remember when the Cal upgrade was beta and I had a minor problem, when I called MM they said, the beta was not supported so I reverted back at that point.

    The upgrade to the new iCal is stable and I like it much better

    Yes the upgraded version is much better. It moves iCal to a web standard (CalDAV) for data transfer, thus opening up both the desktop calendar and iPhone calendar to outside developers. For example there never was a way to sync iCal tasks (to do lists) directly to the iPhone over the air. Now BusyToDo and others do this quite well accessing your CalDAV iCal data from the cloud.

    I read the FAQ to the upgrade, and it states that Leopard only gets 'basic functionality'. I use Snow Leopard at home, but Leopard on my laptop... This article says push is not supprted on Leopard, but that I can retrieve data, which is good. But will it upload any changes that I make? It says nothing about that...:confused:

    I am having problems...

    I just did the upgrade and it keeps returning errors that certain things are not allowed by the server. Anyone familiar with this and how do I correct the problem?

    iCal -> MM is no good!

    Don't know if anyone else has been wrestling with this or not but the new MM refuses to receive updates from iCal. iPhone to MM is fine, MM to iCal is fine but iCal entries won't export anywhere (actually, they will to iPhone but only on manual sync.)
    Google entries do exactly what they're supposed to - i.e. appear on every piece of hardware I own - but my iCal entries just sit there looking pathetic. I've searched the forums and done (as far as I can tell) everything I can to get sync'd but it just won't work.

    A sad Apple fanboy...
