Messaging
Understand messages
To send and receive e-mail messages from an e-mail account, you need to connect to the Internet or
your corporate network, depending on the account.
You can send and receive:
●
Outlook e-mail
●
Internet e-mail through an ISP
You can also access e-mail from work using a VPN connection.
E-mail in the Outlook e-mail account is sent and received through synchronization with a computer using
any synchronization software or through wireless synchronization directly with an Exchange Server.
See Synchronization software on page 60 for more information.
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. When connecting to a POP3 or IMAP4 server, you
need to use a modem to connect to your ISP. You can use an Ethernet card to connect to the local area
network to which your e-mail server is connected.
Types of folders
Each messaging account has its own set of folders with the following default messaging folders:
●
Deleted Items
●
Drafts
●
Inbox
●
Outbox
●
Sent Items
The messages you send and receive through the account are stored in these folders. You can also
create additional folders within each account.
Understand messages
33
The way a folder looks varies by type:
●
If you use an Outlook e-mail account, e-mail messages in the Inbox folder in Outlook are
synchronized automatically with your HP iPAQ. You can choose to synchronize additional folders
by designating them for synchronization. The folders you create and the messages you move are
mirrored on the e-mail server. You can read the messages while you are away from your computer.
●
If you use a POP3 account and you move e-mail messages to a folder you created, the link is
broken between the messages on your HP iPAQ and their copies on the e-mail server. When you
connect, the e-mail server detects that the messages are missing from the Inbox folder on your
HP iPAQ and deletes them from the e-mail server. This prevents having duplicate copies of a
message, but it also means that you no longer have access to messages that you move to folders
created from anywhere except your HP iPAQ.
●
If you use an IMAP4 account, the folders you create and the e-mail messages you move are
mirrored on the e-mail server. Therefore, messages are available to you anytime you connect to
your e-mail server, whether it is from your HP iPAQ or computer. This synchronization of folders
occurs whenever you connect to your e-mail server, create new folders, or rename/delete folders
when connected. You can also set different download options for each folder.
Synchronize e-mail
When you synchronize Outlook e-mail on a computer with your device, e-mail messages are
synchronized as follows:
●
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 sync settings synchronize messages from the past three days and the first 0.5 KB of
each new message is downloaded. It does not download file attachments.
NOTE: For more information on starting Outlook e-mail synchronization or changing synchronization
settings, see the synchronization software help on the computer or tap Contents.

received in your Inbox. However, to receive meeting requests on Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5, do the
following:
●
Ask your system administrator to activate Rich Text Format (RTF) and TNEF support for your
account.
With TNEF enabled, 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.

to the device Inbox folder, messages in the device Outbox folder are sent, and messages that
have been deleted from the server are removed from the device Inbox folder.
TIP: To read the entire message, tap Menu > Download Message while in the message window. If
you are in the message list, tap and hold the message, and then tap Menu > Download Message. The
message will download the next time you send and receive e-mail. This will also download message
attachments if you have selected those options while setting up your e-mail account.
The size column in the message list displays the local size and server size of a message. These numbers
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, using a protocol known as Lightweight Directory Access
Protocol (LDAP). When you create an e-mail account, the directory service of your e-mail server is added
to the Address, and you are given the option to enable it. After it is enabled, Messaging checks your
contact list, and then the directory service to verify names that you enter in the To, Cc, and Bcc fields.
To enable a directory service or if you want to use additional services, follow these steps:
1.
If you are adding a new account, ask your network administrator for the name of the directory
service and the server.
2.
In the message list, tap Menu > Tools > Options… > Address.
3.
In the In Contacts, get e-mail addresses from list, select which e-mail address book to check in
contacts. Contacts will be checked first unless you select None.
4.
If your e-mail server is already listed, select the server's directory service check box to enable it,
and then tap ok.
5.
If your e-mail service is not listed, tap Add…
6.
In the Directory name and Server boxes, enter the LDAP directory and server names.
7.
Ask your network administrator if authentication is necessary for your server. If so, select the
Authentication is necessary on this server check box, and enter your user name and password.
8.
If you want the Messaging application to check this service, select the Check name against this
server check box.
9.
Tap ok.
TIP: To delete a service, tap and hold the service, and then tap Delete.
While synchronizing your Outlook E-mail account, disable any directory services you have installed by
clearing the Check name against this server check box. This helps avoid getting error messages when
Messaging tries to verify names against the service that you are not connected to.

Wireless synchronization cost saving tips
How you manage the cost of wireless synchronization from your HP iPAQ depends on your priorities.
To
Do this
Reduce network connection or data transfer costs
Increase the time between scheduled synchronizations or
synchronize manually. Check the details of your rate plan.
Extend battery life
Schedule synchronization less frequently or synchronize
manually.
Keep your information up to date
During periods of high mail volume, schedule synchronization
at regular but frequent intervals. During periods of low mail
volume, schedule synchronization as items arrive.
NOTE: The device power-down timer is reset each time you synchronize. If you schedule a
synchronization interval that is smaller than the time interval set for the device to automatically power
down, the device never turns off to save battery power.
Troubleshoot synchronization issues
Following is a list of symptoms that might indicate synchronization issues:
●
No ActiveSync tone plays (or a gray icon displays), and there is no activity in the Microsoft
ActiveSync window on your computer.
●
ActiveSync tone plays, and the ActiveSync icon on your computer changes to a swirling green icon.
