    Is it possible to forward my outlook appointments directly from my work pc to my iPad and the show up in the iPad calendar?

    Are you using Exchange with outlook? It's very easy to add an exchange account with mail and calendars.

    Unfortunately my company will not let me configure and non company device on their exchange...

    I get numerous invites to conference calls and meetings on my work email...I was hoping that I could just forward them to my personal email account and add the invite to my iPad calendar...this would help me be better organized and prepared, because I will always have my iPad with me.

    My company would have configured my work email for me but then I would always have to password unlock it, a la Blackberry. So I opted not to do that.

    But they were happy to configure my Outlook diary to sync with the iPad calendar without any need for password, less of a security risk I guess.

    So may be worth asking them if you can sync your calendar only but not email (it is selectable as to what is sync'ed when you set it up)?

    I got round this problem by installing GoogleSync on my work PC and syncing Exchange to Google there instead of at the Exchange server (you can choose one-way or both-ways). Then sync your Google calendar to the iPad (much easier on 4.2 beta, BTW).

    If they're configured to alert in Exchange, they'll alert in the Google calendar too.

    . I did the same and it works REALLY well. A great workaround. The only thing I would say is too set Google calendar to sync once an hour as opposed to every few minutes, as I originally did. The constant syncing will be an unnecessary drain on your Ipod.

    We use mobile iron and servers push exchange email and appointments to the iPad. So far it works great with one caveat, if the appointment has an attached document for review you can't readitif you have accepted the appointment. If you leave the appointment alone you can open the s
    Attachment from your email inbox.

    Google sync worked! Thanks for the help. Now just curious how can I get alerts to the appointments?
