with the information on the desktop computer and/or the server and updates all
locations, keeping you up-to-date with the most recent information.
ActiveSync is already installed on your Pocket PC. You need to install
ActiveSync on your desktop computer.
CAUTION:
z Before installation, make sure that you have Microsoft Outlook installed on your desktop
computer.
z Do not connect your Pocket PC to your desktop computer before ActiveSync is installed.
z ActiveSync connection problems may occur in some specific cases. They are likely
caused by interoperability with desktop firewall applications or applications that manage
network traffic. For troubleshooting information, visit the Microsoft web site:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/help/activesync/default.mspx.

Managing Your Pocket PC
This chapter tells you how to effectively manage power, settings, data and
programs of your Pocket PC.
3.1 Managing Power
A fully charged battery should provide power for up to 8 hours of use. The
operating time of a fully charged battery depends on how you are using the
Pocket PC. Some functions, such as using multimedia or operating a
SD/SDHC/MMC card, may consume the battery power considerably.
Low Battery Signals and Actions
CAUTION: When you recharge the battery upon a warning of low power, you should
charge for at least 30 minutes. If you unplug the AC charger soon, you may not have
sufficient battery power for your operation.
You can monitor the battery power by tapping Æ Settings Æ System Æ Power.
The remaining power is displayed on a status bar in the Power control panel.
When the battery is low, your Pocket PC will pop up a warning message and a
beep will sound. You should save your data and recharge the battery
immediately upon a warning of low power; otherwise your Pocket PC will turn
off automatically. You need to connect the Pocket PC to external AC power for
charging before you can use it again.

4.5 Messaging: Sending and Receiving E-mail
Messages
You can use Messaging to send and receive email messages in two ways:
z
By synchronizing email messages with Microsoft Exchange or Microsoft
Outlook on your desktop computer.
z
By connecting directly to an e-mail server through an ISP (Internet Service
Provider) or a network.
Tap
Æ Messaging to switch to the program.
Synchronizing E-mail Messages
E-mail messages can be synchronized as part of the general synchronization
process. To do this, you need to enable Inbox synchronization in ActiveSync.
For information on enabling Inbox synchronization, see ActiveSync Help on the
desktop computer.
During synchronization, the following occurs:
z
Messages are copied from the mail folders of Exchange or Outlook on your
desktop computer to the ActiveSync folder in Inbox on your Pocket PC.
z
Email messages in the Outbox folder on your Pocket PC are transferred to
Exchange or Outlook and then sent from those programs.
z
The messages on the two computers are linked. When you delete a message
on your Pocket PC, it is deleted from your desktop computer the next time
you synchronize.
Connecting Directly to an E-mail Server
You can send and receive email messages by connecting to a POP3 or IMAP4
e-mail server if you can connect to your ISP or local area network. (For
information on connection, see Section 6.1.)
Setting up an Email Service
You can use multiple email services to receive your messages. For each email
service you intend to use, first set up and name the email service.
37
In Messaging, tap New E-mail Account from the list. Follow the directions in the
E-mail Setup Wizard. For an explanation of a screen, tap at the upper right
corner of the screen.
Using the Email Service
When you connect to the email server, new messages are downloaded to the
Inbox folder on your Pocket PC, messages in the Pocket PC Outbox folder are
sent, and messages that have been deleted on the email server are removed from
the Inbox folder on your Pocket PC.
When you delete a message on your Pocket PC, it is also deleted from the email
server.
You can work online or offline. When working online, you read and respond to
messages while connected to the email server. Messages are sent as soon as you
tap Send.
When working offline, once you have downloaded new message headers or
partial messages, you can disconnect from the email server and then decide
which messages to download completely. The next time you connect, Inbox
downloads the complete messages you have marked for retrieval and sends the
messages you have composed.
38
Using the Message List
Messages you receive are displayed in the message list.
Select the service and folder
you want to display.
Select the sort order for messages.
Tap to open a message.
When you receive a message, tap it to open it.

When you connect to your email server or synchronize with your desktop
computer or server, by default, you will receive messages from the last three
days only and the first 2 KB of each new message, and not to sync file
attachments. The original messages remain on the server or your desktop
computer.
You can mark the messages that you want to retrieve in full during your next
synchronization or email server connection. In the message list, tap and hold the
message you want to retrieve. On the shortcut menu, tap Menu Æ Download
Message. The icons in the Inbox message list give you visual indications of
message status.

7. Tap Send when you have finished the message. If you are working offline,
the message is moved to the Outbox folder and is sent the next time you
connect.
The message is placed in the Outbox folder on your Pocket PC and will be
delivered in one of two ways:
z
The message is transferred to the Outbox folder in Exchange or Outlook on
your desktop computer and sent the next time you synchronize.
z
The message is transferred to your email server the next time you connect.
41
Managing Email Messages and Folders
Each e-mail service account has its own folder hierarchy with five default
folders: Inbox, Outbox, Deleted Items, Drafts and Sent Items. The messages you
receive and send through the mail service are stored in these folders. You can
also create additional folders within each hierarchy. To create folders, tap Menu
Æ Tools Æ Manage Folders.
The Deleted Items folder contains messages that have been deleted on your
Pocket PC. The behaviour of the Deleted and Sent Items folders depends on the
options you have chosen.
NOTE: If you use POP3 and you move email messages to a folder you created, the link is
broken between the messages on the Pocket PC and their copies on the mail server. The
next time you connect, the mail server sees that the messages are missing from the Pocket
PC Inbox and deletes them from the server.
