    WM5 Sync with Vista "Windows Calender", "Contacts", and "Mail"

    I just bought Vista Home Premium together with Office 2007 Home and Student.
    I noticed that Home and Student doesn't include Outlook 2007, but wasn't
    worried since Vista includes great integrated Contacts, Calender and Mail
    services.

    However, having installed the latest Sync Centre upgrades, it looks like
    there is no way to sync the contacts and calender on my WM5 smartphone with
    my Vista contacts and calender - the only options are to sync with Outlook
    2007, which isn't included in the Office 2007 Home and Student Edition. So
    it looks like Vista's Calender, Mail and COntacts are only intended as
    standalone applications that don't integrate with other Microsoft devices.

    There must be a way around this - I cannot believe that Microsoft intend
    this to be part of the Vista customer experience, but if the answer is to buy
    Outlook 2007 then all I can say is "WOW" :-)

    Any tips or advice on how to solve this, please?

    Yeah, that sounds like Microsoft.....They don't even support a lot of their
    own stuff! I have a few problems with stuff that is Microsoft products that
    have no way of working with Vista
