You can send and receive messages in a variety of formats:
●
Outlook® e-mail
●
Internet e-mail through an Internet Service Provider (ISP)
●
Text messages
●
Multimedia messages
You can also access e-mail from your workplace through a VPN connection. For more information, see
Set up a VPN server connection on page 79.
E-mail in the Outlook e-mail account is sent and received through synchronization with a computer using
any synchronizing software or through wireless synchronization directly with an Exchange Server. For
more information, see Synchronization on page 81.
Internet e-mail is sent and received by connecting to a Post Office Protocol 3 (POP3) or Internet
Message Access Protocol 4 (IMAP4) e-mail server. You would require Internet access from a GSM,
GPRS, EDGE, or 3G carrier to connect to a POP3 or IMAP4 Server. You can connect to the Internet
using Wi-Fi, a computer, or a Bluetooth device. To connect to the Internet through your HP iPAQ, use
a data-enabled cell phone.
NOTE:
The messaging program also supports Visto.
Text messages are sent and received through your wireless service provider using a phone number as
the message address.
Text messaging
Text messaging is the transmission of short text messages to and from a mobile phone. A single text
message cannot be longer than 160 alpha-numeric characters.
NOTE:
The number of characters supported depends on your service provider.
The text messages you reply to or forward are clubbed together with the original message.
You might incur extra costs when sending text messages, depending on your service provider.
Messages longer than 160 alpha-numeric characters are sent as multiple text messages. A character
count is visible when text messages (New/Reply/Forward) are composed. The count also shows how
many text messages are generated when the message is sent.
To write a new text message:

MMS and its uses
MMS is a method of transmitting photographs, video clips, sound files, and short text messages over
wireless networks.

You might incur extra costs when sending MMS, depending on your service provider.
When the phone radio is turned on for the first time, the HP iPAQ DataConnect program detects the
mobile phone service provider and automatically populates the MMS settings on the HP iPAQ.
NOTE:
Do not change the MMS settings unless advised to by your mobile phone service provider.
Alternately, you can access some MMS settings by pressing Start > Messaging > SMS/
MMS > Menu > New > MMS > Menu > Options > Message Options. Do not change the MMS settings
unless advised to by your mobile phone service provider.
The MMS account has its own set of folders with five default Messaging folders:

Chapter 9 Messaging
Synchronize e-mail
When you synchronize the Outlook e-mail on the computer with your device, this is what happens with
your e-mail messages:
●
Messages in the Inbox folder on your computer or Exchange Server are copied to the Inbox folder
of the Outlook e-mail account on your device.
●
Messages in the Outbox folder on your device are transferred to Exchange Server or Outlook and
then sent from those programs.
●
When you delete a message on your device, it is deleted from your computer or Exchange Server
the next time you synchronize.
●
The default synchronization settings synchronize messages from the past three days and download
the first 0.5 KB of each new message. No file attachments are downloaded.
NOTE: For more information on starting Outlook e-mail synchronization or changing synchronization
settings, see the synchronization software's help on the computer.
Text messages are not received through synchronization. Instead, your service provider sends them to
your device.
Use messaging
Folder types
Each messaging account has a set of five default Messaging folders:
●
Inbox
●
Outbox
●
Deleted Items
●
Drafts
●
Sent Items
The messages you receive and send through the account are stored in these folders. You can also
create additional folders for each account.
The way folders work varies by type:
●
If you use an Outlook e-mail account, e-mail messages in the Inbox folder in Outlook are
synchronized with your device automatically. Select additional folders for synchronization by
assigning them designations. The folders you create and the messages you move are then mirrored
on the e-mail server.
●
If you use an MMS account or a text message account, messages are stored in the Inbox folder.
●
If you use a POP3 account and move your e-mail messages to a folder you created, the link breaks
between the messages on the device and their copies on the e-mail server. When you connect,
the e-mail server detects that the messages are missing from the HP iPAQ Inbox folder and deletes
them from the e-mail server. This prevents having duplicate copies of a message, but it also means
that you do not have access to messages.
●
If you use an IMAP4 account, the folders you create and the e-mail messages you move are
mirrored on the e-mail server. That is, they exist in both places. These messages are therefore
available from any location or device. This synchronization occurs whenever you connect to your
Synchronize e-mail
51
e-mail server, and when you create new folders, or rename or delete folders when connected. You
can also set different download options for each folder.

Receive meeting requests
When you retrieve your e-mail messages through ActiveSync, you can receive meeting requests. When
connecting directly to an e-mail server, the server must be running Microsoft Exchange Server
Version 5.5 or later for you to receive meeting requests.
Use messaging
53
If the server is running Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 or later, your meeting requests are automatically
received in your Inbox. However, to receive meeting requests on Microsoft Exchange Server V5.5, do
the following preparation:
●
Ask your system administrator to activate Rich Text Format (RTF) and TNEF support for your
account.
With TNEF turned on, your messages that are included in other messages as attachments are not
received, and you cannot know if a message has an attachment until you get the full copy. In
addition, download time might be longer.

might differ because the size of a message can vary between the server and the device.
Install an online address book
Many e-mail servers, including servers running Exchange Server, can verify names with an online
address book called a directory service. When you create an e-mail account, the directory service of
your e-mail server is added to the address book. To enable a directory service or to use additional

charging and discharging cycles to reach its original
capacity. Use the HP iPAQ after charging the battery
completely. The solid green LED display indicates full
battery charge.
●

following checks:
●
Is the battery charger correctly plugged into the battery
charger socket on the HP iPAQ? To know more about
charging the battery, see Step 3: Charge the battery

SAR Notice
THIS DEVICE MEETS INTERNATIONAL GUIDELINES FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to exceed
the limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) recommended by international guidelines (ICNIRP).
These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF energy for the
general population. The guidelines were developed by independent scientific organizations through
periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies. The guidelines include a substantial safety margin
designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The exposure standard for mobile devices employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific
Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit stated in the international guidelines is 2.0 W/kg*. Tests for
SAR are conducted using standard operating positions with the device transmitting at its highest certified
power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power
level, the actual SAR of the device while operating can be well below the maximum value. This is
because the device is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the power required
to reach the network.
In general, the closer you are to a base station, the lower the power output of the device. Before a phone
model is available for sale to the public, compliance with the European R&TTE directive must be shown.
This directive includes as one essential requirement the protection of the health and the safety for the
user and any other person. The highest non-FCC SAR value for this device when tested for use at the
ear is 1.27 W/kg.
This device meets RF exposure guidelines when used either in the normal use position against the ear
or when positioned away from the body. When a carry case, belt clip or holder is used for body-worn
operation other than the HP belt clip supplied with the product, it should not contain metal. The highest
non-FCC SAR value for this device when tested for use at the body is 1.17 W/kg.
* The non-FCC SAR limit for mobile devices used by the public is 2.0 Watts/Kilogram (W/kg) averaged
over ten grams of body tissue. The guidelines incorporate a substantial margin of safety to give additional
protection for the public and to account for any variations in measurements. SAR values may vary
depending on national reporting requirements and the network band.
126 Chapter 21 Regulatory notices
Wireless Notices
In some environments, the use of wireless devices may be restricted. Such restrictions may apply aboard
airplanes, in hospitals, near explosives, in hazardous locations, etc. If you are uncertain of the policy
that applies to the use of this device, please ask for authorization to use it prior to turning it on.
U.S. Regulatory Wireless Notice
WARNING! Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Radiation The radiated output power of this device
is below the FCC radio frequency exposure limits. Nevertheless, the device should be used in such a
manner that the potential for human contact during normal operation is minimized.
The exposure standard for wireless mobile phones employs a unit of measurement known as the
Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6 W/kg. Tests for SAR are
conducted using standard operating positions accepted by the FCC with the phone transmitting at its
highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the highest
certified power level, the actual SAR level of the phone while operating can be well below the maximum
value. This is because the phone is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the
poser required to reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless base station antenna,
the lower the power output.
To avoid the possibility of exceeding the FCC radio frequency exposure limits, human proximity to the
antenna should be minimized. No metallic body accessories are allowed and 1.5 cm spacing between
HP iPAQ and the body must be maintained to satisfy RF Exposure.
This device has been tested and demonstrated compliance when Bluetooth, WLAN, and mobile phone
are transmitting simultaneously. The highest FCC SAR value for this device when tested for use at the
head is 1.22 W/kg and when tested for use at the body is 1.09 W/kg. This device must not be co-located
or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.
