|As far as I know the problem only occurs with 64bit Outlook. 32bit will sync with Windows Mobile Device Centre (and so Win mobile 6.5). 32bit Outlook is the default install and works fine on 64bit Windows.|
From what I can gather, MS don't seem to want to include outlook syncing with Windows mobile 7 at all - I haven't had any responses from Microsoft when I've emailed them and other commentators seem to have drawn a blank as well - Microsoft's stock answer is to change to Hotmail accounts - essentially Cloud-based, for want of a better description.
Long-term I'm almost certainly going to look at Android with one of the apps that do the syncing - luckily there are a lot of developers out there who can write good stuff for Android.
