What's the best Pocket PC 2003 software out there that will let me sync my Lotus Notes email/contacts/calendar with my Dell Axim X3i??

I've owned a Dell Axim X3i (PocketPC 2003) for a little while now and I've found it's been collecting dust at home mostly because I have very little use for it at work.

This is because we run Lotus Notes as our email/scheduling/contact list/etc. at work. However, there's no easy (nor free) way of sync'ing my email at work with my PDA.

I've decided I'll probably need to buy one of these software packages to get this to work properly, but there seems to be a huge array of them on the 'net and rave reviews for all of them. But which one do I chose?

I use mNotes on my iPAQ and have been very pleased with it. Best bit is that when you do a generic PDA sync it replicates your mail, calendar, contacts, etc. which for whatever reason other packages tend not to do -- you have to sync and then open the software and replicate -- annoying for forgetful people like myself. Regarding cost, luckily, my company provided me with the software, but from the site it looks like mNotes is about 75 bucks. Good luck!

I've used Intellisync for a while for syncing to Notes. I like it because you can apply filters so that items that you don't want on your PDA don't get synced.

I had heard in the past of people using a Lotus product also, but the website is less than helpful about where to buy, cost, etc. Classic.

I'm looking for something reasonably seamless and painfree. I should be able to drop my PDA into the cradle and the software should be smart enough to sync itself without any intervention from me.

Do both these products do that?

mNotes does what you describe. That's why I like it -- easy and painless for those of use that are technologically-averse and um, what was I gonna say, oh yeah, forgetful.
