    I've been on the MM trial for a month now. I don't think I'm going to purchase it when my trial is up. It has not been as slick (snappy) as advertised. Using the web based apps through Opera at first and it would constantly freeze up. I used Firefox and that lagged greatly, buttons would not work (new message, send, delete). Now I'm using chrome and it's still slow.

    Push email works for me on less than half the emails I receive.

    My main problems have been syncing with outlook. I've used apple support chat, that didn't help. I followed the links I was told to follow, that didn't help. I've never been able to sync calendars. I finally deleted my subscribed calendars, but that didn't help. I keep getting the same error saying that there is inconsistent data. My biggest gripe though is that not all of my contacts are syncing, only 65-70% are. No matter what I try, I can't get the missing contacts to show up (it is the same contacts everytime). I've tried reseting sync history. I've tried deleting all of my contacts in outlook and syncing. I've tried reseting sync data, replacing all data in outlook with data from mobile me. Still the same contacts are missing everytime. Anyone know what gives?

    MM has serious bugs

    Do not waste time to sync from MM to Outlook, I have contacted Apple and they still have not solve the problems.

    If you Outlook has the latest updates, then you can try deleting contacts in MM and do a reset sync history to sync from outlook to MM. I am not so lucky, search for my postings in another thread for more details...


    Very frustrated.

    I have the same issue (see my reply in a thread about inconsistent data) I was able to get all of my contacts to sync by removing all of the Groups from my Mac contacts. Seems that Groups on the Mac are not compatible with Categories in Outlook. I still cant sync Calendars.

    I had removed Groups before and still MM did not sync with Outlook. Maybe William can confirm.
