Hi all,

WM6 device syncing to Exchange.

When you use Activesync on a PC to setup which mail folders you'd like to sync, you have the ability to set how many weeks in the past you'd like to synchronise.

If you use the device only and never install Activesync you have the ability to set a period to sync on the Inbox, but it appears that if you try to sync any other folder it will attempt to sync the whole lot.

What I'm trying to achieve is the ability to provide the last week or 2 of sent items on the device. If the user sends an email they can then review it, but also check the sent items to ensure they really sent it.

There doesn't appear to be any controls of how much to sync when managing any folder except the inbox, unless you use the activesync application on your desktop.

Does this sound correct?

Cheers!

It's not correct. The number of days/weeks applies to all folders you have selected for synchronisation. I imagine "Sent Items" is quite a large folder for almost everyone, so two weeks can be a lot of emails...

Thanks Freitasm.. Interesting.. makes sense.

I suppose then the benefit of Activesync on your PC is that it allows you to synchronise each folder based on a custom days/weeks/months.

So if you want ALL of your inbox but only a week of sent items, you're basically going to have to load activesync and configure via PC.

ActiveSync on your PC is for synchronisation to Outlook and program installation. The functionality is the same when it comes to what and how much is synchronised. You can't select different time span for different folders.

Bugger... I was sure you could configure per folder sync periods on each folder through activesync on pc.

Would be handy though.
