My university uses an IMAP e-mail server.
I have setup up my O2 XphoneII to ActiveSync my outlook e-mail, however it only takes any folders under "personal folders" in Outlook. i can't seem to figure out a way to get it to sync with any IMAP mail folders (which i have going through outlook). i have just been manually transfering mail from my IMAP folder to my Inbox...kind of annoying and useless.

is there any way to automatically synchronize the IMAP folder(s) with a personal folder in outlook? or rather any way to sync IMAP mail with my phone?

thanks

No, I don't think so. It can synchronise the Outlook personal folders, or Exchange.

You could change the IMAP mailbox on your Outlook to deliver the messages to your personal folder instead (but then it will lose the transparent IMAP synchronisation between client and server).

You can create a new mailbox on your Smartphone, with type IMAP and make it sync every [x] minutes. If your phone is connected to ActiveSync the synchronisation will be over the LAN, so no GPRS charges there.

To use ActiveSync passthrough make sure your phone configuration (Connections, Internet) is set to automatic.

i didn't know you could setup up to receive IMAP e-mail directly on the smartphone, via ActiveSync and my laptop's internet connection. i will look into this further, thanks.
