A little help for someone just starting to use mobile computing.

I've got a QTEK 2200I and just started sending and receiving POP3 emails using a business account which I set up.

The emails that I have sent from the QTEK are in the POP3 account (not the Outlook one) Sent Items folder but I can't get ActiveSync to put them into the Sent Items on my desktop PC.

I've tried right mouse click on ActiveSync's Inbox / Setting / selected Sent Items but nothing gets transfered.

Welcome to Geekzone... On the Pocket PC only the Outlook account is synchronised - other account types (POP3 or IMAP) are not synchronised at all. They only retrieve data from a server.

Sent Items on such accounts are not stored anywhere. If your company requires accountability, then you will have to BCC yourself or use the Outlook or an Exchange account.

Interestingly enough, Gmails smtp server will dump all your outgoing mail into your account for storage/retrieval. (Although I realise this is not suitable for business use, maybe useful for other readers to know)

Visit for New Zealand based Hosted Exchange, Virtual Servers, Web Hosting, FTP Backup & more.
(1GB free FTP storage, or larger plans from $5.75)

Hi Mauricio,

Thanks for your helpful reply. Actuaaly, I decided this morning I'd replace the QTEK 220 with a QTEK 9000 as it should offer web browsing and POP3 work at realistic speeds.

Don't suppose you know if the QTEK 9000 does what I want?

Hi Tony,

In fact I'm a fan of gmail, but, as you surmise, I can't use it for business.

The QTEK 900 will be faster, but the system is the same, so it will behave the same in terms of e-mail functionality.

I personally have one of these (branded as the i-mate Jasjar) and I am happy with it.

But for you to keep a copy of e-mails sent through the POP3 account you have to BCC: yourself.
