8 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

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

Reduce network connection or data transfer costs

Extend battery life

Keep your information up to date

Do this

Increase the time between scheduled synchronizations or synchronize manually. Check the details of your rate plan.

Schedule synchronization less frequently or synchronize manually.

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.

The
