Chapter 1: Getting Started
Welcome
Congratulations on purchasing your Pocket PC. Its compact size and powerful features and
functions let you keep your most important business and personal information up-to-date and
close at hand. Microsoft® ActiveSync® increases the power of your Pocket PC by allowing you to
synchronize the information on your desktop or laptop computer with your Pocket PC. Picture
yourself in the following situations:
• While walking with a colleague, your cell phone rings and the boss asks if you two are free this
afternoon for an emergency meeting. While your colleague fumbles through his paper
organizer, you press a button on your Pocket PC and instantly see a list of today’s appointments
and meetings. You are quickly able to tell the boss your available times. For more information
on scheduling appointments and meetings, see Chapter 4.
• You’re meeting your friends tonight for dinner and a movie. You download the latest movie
information from the Internet to your desktop computer and then synchronize it with your
Pocket PC. At dinner, you pull out your Pocket PC and review your movie options with your
friends. For more information on downloading Web pages, see Chapter 7.
• A Calendar reminder alerts you that it is time to catch the bus. You grab your Pocket PC and
catch the bus just in time. Because ActiveSync keeps the information on your Pocket PC up-todate, you leisurely review your task list, make notes about the new books and CDs you want to
buy, and read and respond to e-mail messages. When you get back to the office, ActiveSync
transfers any task changes you made, your notes, and your e-mail message responses to your
desktop computer. For more information on ActiveSync, see Chapter 3.

editing command on the pop-up menu, or by tapping the command on the Edit menu.
13
Writing on the Screen
In any program that accepts writing, such as the Notes program and the Notes tab in Calendar,

Tips for getting good recognition
• Write neatly.
• Write on the lines 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.
• Write the letters of a word closely and leave big gaps between words so that the Pocket PC can
easily tell where 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 (such as changing a “3” to an “8”) after you attempt to
recognize the word, the writing you add will not be included if you attempt to recognize the
writing again.
Drawing on the Screen
You can draw on the screen in the same way that you write on the screen. The difference between
writing and drawing on the screen is how you select items and how they can be edited. For
example, selected drawings can be resized, while writing cannot.
To create a drawing
Cross three ruled lines on your first stroke. A drawing box appears. Subsequent strokes in or
touching the drawing box become part of the drawing. Drawings that do not cross three ruled
lines will be treated as writing.
The drawing box indicates
the boundaries of the drawing.
Pen button.
You may want to change the zoom level so that you can more easily work on or view your
drawing. Tap Tools and then select a zoom level.
16
To select a drawing
If you want to edit or format a drawing, you must select it first.
• Tap and hold the stylus on the drawing until the selection handle appears. To select multiple
drawings, deselect the Pen button and then drag to select the drawings you want.
You can cut, copy, and paste selected drawings by tapping and holding the selected drawing and
then tapping an editing command on the pop-up menu, or by tapping the command on the Edit
menu. To resize a drawing, make sure the Pen button is not selected, and drag a selection handle.
Recording a Message
In any program where you can write or draw on the screen, you can also quickly capture thoughts,
reminders, and phone numbers by recording a message. In Calendar, Tasks, and Contacts, you can
include a recording in the Notes tab. In the Notes program, you can either create a stand-alone
recording or include a recording in a written note. If you want to include the recording in a note,
open the note first. In the Inbox program, you can add a recording to an e-mail message.

Microsoft Outlook data on your desktop computer.
• Synchronize Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel files between your Pocket PC and desktop
computer. Your files are automatically converted to the correct format.
By default, ActiveSync does not automatically synchronize all types of information. Use
ActiveSync options to turn synchronization on and off for specific information types.
With ActiveSync, you can also:
• Back up and restore your Pocket PC data.
• Copy (rather than synchronize) files between your Pocket PC and desktop computer.
• Control when synchronization occurs by selecting a synchronization mode. For example, you
can synchronize continually while the Pocket PC is connected to your desktop computer (using
a cradle or the cable), or only when you choose the synchronize command.
• Select which information types are synchronized and control how much data is synchronized.
For example, you can choose how many weeks of past appointments you want synchronized.
Before you begin synchronization, install ActiveSync on your desktop computer from the Pocket
PC Companion CD. For more information on installing ActiveSync, see your Quick Start Guide.
After installation is complete, the ActiveSync Setup Wizard helps you connect your Pocket PC to
your desktop computer, set up a partnership so you can synchronize information between your
device and your desktop computer, and customize your synchronization settings. Your first
synchronization process will automatically begin when you finish using the wizard.
After your first synchronization, take a look at Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks on your device.
You’ll notice that information you’ve stored in Microsoft Outlook on your desktop computer has
been copied to your device, and you didn’t have to type a word. Disconnect your Pocket PC from
your computer and you’re ready to go!

Chapter 4: Microsoft Pocket Outlook
Microsoft® Pocket Outlook includes Calendar, Contacts, Tasks, Inbox, and Notes. You can use
these programs individually or together. For example, e-mail addresses stored in Contacts can be
used to address e-mail messages in Inbox.
Using ActiveSync®, you can synchronize information in Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft
Exchange on your desktop computer with your Pocket PC. You can also synchronize this
information directly with a Microsoft Exchange server. Each time you synchronize, ActiveSync
compares the changes you made on your Pocket PC and desktop computer or server and updates
both computers with the latest information. For information on using ActiveSync, see ActiveSync

Inbox: Sending and Receiving E-mail Messages
Use Inbox to send and receive e-mail messages in either of these ways:
• Synchronize e-mail messages with Microsoft Exchange or Microsoft Outlook on your desktop
computer.
• Send and receive e-mail messages by connecting directly to an e-mail server through an
Internet service provider (ISP) or a network.
We recommend that you reset your CASSIOPEIA periodically, which deletes temporary
files created by the system and frees up user memory. This is especially true if you notice
that remaining user memory capacity is running low. See the Hardware Manual for details
about the reset procedure.
Synchronizing E-mail Messages
E-mail messages can be synchronized as part of the general synchronization process. You will
need to enable Inbox synchronization in ActiveSync. For information on enabling Inbox
synchronization, see ActiveSync Help on the desktop computer.
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 Pocket PC. By default, you will receive messages
from the past three 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 Pocket PC are transferred to Exchange or
Outlook, and then sent from those programs.
• E-mail messages in subfolders must be selected in ActiveSync on your desktop computer in
order to be transferred.
You can also synchronize e-mail messages with your desktop computer from a remote
location. For more information, see Chapter 8.
31
Connecting Directly to an E-mail Server
In addition to synchronizing e-mail messages with your desktop computer, you can send and
receive e-mail messages by connecting to an e-mail server using a modem or network card
connected to your Pocket PC. You’ll need to set up a remote connection to a network or an ISP,
and a connection to your e-mail server. For more information, see Chapter 8.
When you connect to the e-mail server, new messages are downloaded to the Pocket PC Inbox
folder, messages in the Pocket PC Outbox folder are sent, and messages that have been deleted on
the e-mail server are removed from the Pocket PC Inbox.
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 Pocket PC, it’s also deleted
from the e-mail server the next time you connect.
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 Send, which saves space on
your Pocket PC.
When working offline, once you’ve downloaded new message headers or partial messages, you
can disconnect from the e-mail server and then decide which messages to download completely.
The next time you connect, Inbox downloads the complete messages you’ve marked for retrieval
and sends the messages you’ve composed.
Using the Message List
Messages you receive are displayed in the message list. By default, the most recently received
messages are displayed first in the list.
Select the service and folder you want to display.
Select the sort order for messages.
Tap to open a message.
Tap and hold to display
a pop-up menu of actions.
Tap to connect and to send and receive e-mail.
Tap to connect to the selected service.
32
When you receive a message, tap it in the list to open it. Unread messages are displayed in bold.
Tap to return to the message list.
Tap delete this message.
Tap to view the previous
or next message.
Tap to replay to or
forward this message.
When you connect to your e-mail server or synchronize with your desktop computer, by default,
you’ll receive messages from the last five days only, the first 100 lines of each new message, and
file attachments of less than 100 KB in size. The original messages remain on the e-mail 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
pop-up menu, tap Mark for Download. The icons in the Inbox message list give you visual
indications of message status.
You specify your downloading preferences when you set up the service or select your
synchronization options. You can change them at any time.
• Change options for Inbox synchronization using ActiveSync options. For more information, see
ActiveSync Help.
• Change options for direct e-mail server connections in Inbox on your Pocket PC. Tap Tools and
then tap Options. On the Service tab, tap the service you want to change.
Important information about attached files!
The system creates a temporary file whenever you open a file attached to a mail message while in
Inbox. Sometimes, such temporary files remain in memory even after you close the attached file.
You can delete leftover temporary files by performing the reset operation. We recommend that
you periodically reset your pocket PC in order to delete accumulated temporary files and free up
the memory they use. See the Hardware Manual for details about the reset procedure.
33
Composing E-mail Messages
To compose an e-mail message
1. Tap New.
2. In the To field, enter an e-mail address of one or more recipients, separating them with a
semicolon, or select a name from the contact list by tapping the Address Book button.
All e-mail addresses entered in the e-mail fields in Contacts appear in the Address Book.

the complete header.

Tap to insert common messages.
3. Compose your message. To enter preset or frequently used messages, tap My Text and select a
message.
4. Tap Send when you’ve finished the message. If you are working offline, the message is moved
to the Outbox folder and will be sent the next time you connect.
Managing E-mail Messages and Folders
By default, messages are displayed in one of five folders for each service you have created: Inbox,
Deleted Items, Drafts, Outbox, and Sent Items. The Deleted Items folder contains messages that
have been deleted on the Pocket PC. The behavior of the Deleted and Sent Items folders depends
on the options you have chosen. In the message list, tap Tools and then Options. On the Message
tab, select your options.
If you want to organize messages into additional folders, tap Tools, and then Manage Folders to
create new folders. To move a message to another folder, in the message list, tap and hold the
message and then tap Move to on the pop-up menu.
34
Folder behavior with a direct connection to an e-mail server
The behavior of the folders you create depends on whether you are using ActiveSync, POP3, or
IMAP4.
• If you use ActiveSync, e-mail messages in the Inbox folder in Outlook will automatically be
synchronized with your device. You can select to synchronize additional folders by designating
them for ActiveSync. The folders you create and the messages you move will then be mirrored
on the server. For example, if you move two messages from the Inbox folder to a folder named
Family, and you have designated Family for synchronization, the server creates a copy of the
Family folder and copies the messages into that folder. You can then read the messages while
away from your desktop computer.
• If you use POP3 and you move e-mail 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 will see that the messages are missing from the Pocket PC 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 Pocket PC.
• If you use 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 server,
whether it is from your Pocket PC or desktop computer. This synchronization of folders occurs
whenever you connect to your mail server, create new folders, or rename/delete folders when
connected.
