Writing recognition tips
• Write neatly.
• Write on the line and draw descenders below the line. Write the
cross of the “t” and apostrophes below the top line so that they
are not confused with the word above. Write periods and commas
above the line.
• For better recognition, try increasing the zoom level to 300%
using the Tools menu.
• Do not spread the letters of a word, keep the letters relatively
close to each other so that the device can easily tell where the
words begin and end.
• Hyphenated words, foreign words that use special characters such
as accents, and some punctuation cannot be converted.
• If you add writing to a word to change it after the word has been
recognized, the writing that you added will be included when you
try to recognize the writing again.

Introduction
What is ActiveSync® ?
The Microsoft® ActiveSync® is one of the most important bundled
programs in your P505. With ActiveSync®, you can synchronize the
information on your desktop computer with the information on your
device. Synchronization compares the data on your device with your
desktop computer and updates both computers with the most recent
information.
For example:
• Keep Pocket Outlook data up-to-date by synchronizing your device
with Microsoft® Outlook data on your desktop computer.
• Synchronize Microsoft® Word and Microsoft® Excel files between
your device and desktop computer. Your files are automatically
converted to the correct format.
NOTE
By default, ActiveSync® does not automatically synchronize
all types of information. Use the ActiveSync® options to turn
synchronization on or off for specific information types.
With ActiveSync® , you can also:
• Back up and restore your device data
• Copy (rather than synchronize) files between your device and
desktop computer
• Schedule data synchronization by selecting a synchronization
mode. For example, you can synchronize continually while
connected to your desktop computer or only when you choose to
synchronize.
• Select which information types are synchronized and control how
much data is synchronized. For example, you can choose to
synchronize your appointments of the past two weeks only,
appointments older than two weeks are not synchronized.
For more information about using ActiveSync® :
1. Start ActiveSync® on your desktop computer.
2. From the Activesync® menu bar, click Help then on Microsoft
ActiveSync Help
Help.

you have Microsoft® Outlook® installed on your computer. If
you do not have Outlook, install the Microsoft® Outlook®

Introduction
Microsoft® Pocket Outlook® includes Calendar, Tasks, Notes,
Contacts, and Messaging. You can use these programs individually or
together. For example, e-mail address stored in Contacts can be used
to address e-mail messages in Messaging.
Using ActiveSync®, you can synchronize information in Microsoft®
Outlook or Microsoft® Exchange on your desktop computer with your
device. You can also synchronize this information directly with a
Microsoft® Exchange server. Each time you synchronize, ActiveSync®
compares the changes you made on your device and desktop
computer or server and updates both computers with the latest
information. For information on using ActiveSync®, see ActiveSync®
Help on your desktop computer.

the mail server will see that the messages are missing from the
device Inbox and delete them from the server. This prevents you
from having duplicate copies of a message, but it also means that
you will no longer have access to messages that you move to
folders created from anywhere except the device.
• If you select IMAP4
IMAP4, the folders you create and the e-mail
messages you move are mirrored on the server. Therefore,
messages are available to you anytime you connect to your mail

mail server, create new folders, or rename/delete folders when
connected.

E-mail
Send and receive e-mail messages by:
• synchronizing with Microsoft® Exchange or Microsoft® Outlook on
your desktop computer by cradle, infrared, or Bluetooth™.
• connecting directly with your Microsoft® Exchange/Outlook or
POP3/IMAP service using GPRS (contact your system
administrator, phone operator, or network provider for more
details).
Synchronizing e-mail messages
Once ActiveSync® has been installed on your desktop computer you
can link your desktop computer to your P505 using the cradle. You
can also use infrared or Bluetooth™, if your computer has these
capabilities. Each time you connect, the P505 and computer compare
e-mail content and synchronize, so you have the same information on
each device.
During synchronization:
• Messages are copied from the mail folders of Exchange or Outlook
on your desktop computer to the ActiveSync folder in Inbox on
your device. By default, you will receive messages from the past
five days only, the first 100 lines of each message, and file
attachments of less than 100 KB in size.
• E-mail messages in the Outbox folder on your device are
transferred to Exchange or Outlook, then sent by the computer.
• E-mail messages in subfolder must be selected in ActiveSync on
your desktop computer in order to be transferred.
NOTE
You can also synchronize e-mail messages with your desktop
computer from a remote location. Refer to the ActiveSync
help file.
You can change how messages are transferred, for example, transfer
all content or download messages from subfolders by changing the
appropriate settings in ActiveSync® on your desktop computer.
Connecting directly to an e-mail server
To send and receive messages using GPRS, you need to set up a
connection to the network and your e-mail or Internet service provider.
Chapter 6: Messaging features
6-31
When you connect to the e-mail server, new messages are
downloaded to the Outlook E-mail account’s Inbox folder,
messages in the device Outbox folders are sent, and messages that
have been deleted on the e-mail server are removed from the device
Inbox folder.
Messages that you receive directly from an e-mail server are linked to
your e-mail server rather than your desktop computer. When you
delete a message on your device, it is also deleted from the e-mail
server the next time you connect based on the settings you selected
in ActiveSync®.
You can work online or offline. When working online, you read and
respond to messages while connected to the e-mail server. Messages
are sent as soon as you tap S e n d
d, which saves space in your device.
When working offline, once you have downloaded new message
headers or partial messages, you can disconnect from the e-mail
server and 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.

RF Exposure Information (SAR)
This model phone meets the government’s requirements for exposure to
radio waves.
This phone is designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits
for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal
Communications Commission of the U.S. Government.
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 1.6W/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.
The highest SAR value for the model phone as reported to the FCC when
tested for use at the ear is 0.633 W/kg and when worn on the body, as
described in this user guide, is 0.703 W/kg. (Body-worn measurements differ
among phone models, depending upon available enhancements and FCC
requirements.)
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones
and at various positions, they all meet the government requirement.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model phone with
all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure
guidelines. SAR information on this model phone is on file with the FCC and
can be found under the Display Grant section of
http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid after searching on FCC ID: MSQ-P505.
For body worn operation, this phone has been tested and meets the FCC RF
exposure guidelines for use with an accessory that contains no metal and the
positions the handset a minimum of 1.5 cm from the body. Use of other
enhancements may not ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines.
If you do no t use a body-worn accessory and are not holding the phone at
the ear, position the handset a minimum of 1.5 cm from your body when the
phone is switched on.
