Can you please give me instructions on how to set-up and access my Outlook emails?
I can access them through Active Sync, but I would like to be able to access them when I am away from my PC.
This is my first Smartphone and I don't know much about them, so a step by step would be handy.
It runs on Windows Smartphone 2003 2nd Edition. Thanks.Embarassed

Well that would depend who hosts your Email

But if handset is connected to Vodafone NZ the out going server address would be

and incoming would be the incoming server and user name for the servers that host the email

Hi there. You Windows Mobile device is designed to synchronise to Outlook or Exchange. It can also check pop3 and imap emails.

Synchronisation to Outlook must go through ActiveSync. You can't (easily) access the email on your Outlook Inbox over the air. You can however synchronise to Exchange server from outside your company, but this requires some configuration.

Also, if your company is not using an Exchange Server then you need to configure a new account on your Smartphone and access a pop3 or imap server. This will not synchronise with your Outlook. If Outlook downloads the e-mails from the server then your phone won't see these until you synchronise to your desktop PC.

There are some programs that redirect emails from Outlook to a Pocket PC or Smartphone, but again they require some Internet connectivity, meaning your PC must be on all the time. Try for a start.
