It would help if you could clarify what you are trying to achieve. Not all functions require an outgoing port on Windows Mobile, the only ones I can remember are GPS...

Hi -
I'm trying to connect my i-mate JAMin (Windows Mobile 5.0) to my IBM laptop, just to synch up emails. 
The firewall on my work email will not allow the USB connection to use ActiveSync, so I am trying to set up Bluetooth. 

I haven't been able to get the services set up right betwewen the two, and so I deleted and re-added the services and devices several times in the Bluetooth setup.  It seems I have two problems:

First, the PDA used to have two options:  New Incoming port and New Outgoing port.  After I deleted various old connections, now the only option I see is New Inbound port.  the New Outbound port disappeared. 

Second, the only ports that my device can access appear to be COM6 and COM7.  On my PC, I remeber yesterday or the day before both COM6 and COM7 were available, on my PC.  I must have set COM6 up at some point, and then when I deleted the services, it is not releasing the port.  I have deletd all serial port services from Bluetooth on my machine, and deleted the ActiveSync service, but COM6 is still not showing up as available - only COM7 is showing up.

In reading the guides to set up Bluetooth, it looks like I need to define the Outbound port on my device to start the connection to Outlook (or the Exchange server.)  Is this the case?

Sorry for being so ignorant - this is my first foray into the Bluetooth world.

The only COM port you need to configure is on your PC. Make sure it's an Incoming (or Server) COM port, and configure ActiveSync to listen on this port.

On your Pocket PC you have to delete the current pairing, and create it again. Upon creation it will automatically try to connect to ActiveSync over Bluetooth. If the configuration is ok on your PC this is all you need to do.
