Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
Microsoft ActiveSync 4.2 is the latest sync software release for Windows Mobile-based devices. ActiveSync provides a great synchronization experience with Windows®-based PCs and Microsoft Outlook right out of the box. ActiveSync acts as the gateway between your Windows-based PC and Windows Mobile-based device, enabling the transfer of Outlook information, Office documents, pictures, music, videos and applications to and from your device. In addition to synchronizing with a desktop PC, ActiveSync can synchronize directly with Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 so that you can keep your e-mail, calendar data, tasks and contact information updated wirelessly when you’re away from your PC.*
Changes in ActiveSync 4.2 help resolve connectivity related issues with Microsoft Outlook, proxies, partnerships, and connectivity.
ActiveSync 4.2 supports PC sync via USB cable, Bluetooth, or infrared connection.
Why Why Why ? One thing I learned about AS 4.2 when it was in beta; unlike previous versions there is no way (not even a registry hack) to change the location of the Synchronized Files Folder. Before you could edit a registry key to place this folder anywhere (even a network drive for example), now, it's forced into "My Documents". But not all of us want "My Documents". Does anyone know away around this very anoying issue ?
