Compatible with Good Messaging?

neurojava @ 12/5/2007 8:01:33 PM # Q
So has anyone who uses Good Messaging updated to WM6 - does it work as it should - did it require a reinstall?

Any help would be appreciated!

Office Mobile 6.1

Just to verify this. Since I've updated to Windows Mobile 6, Do I need to perform an office mobile 6.1 update??? I know that the office that was included in the WM6 has the office 6.1 version, but I don't know if the office mobile 6.1 update has any new patch that I need to install.
