We have just brought the boss an Apache. It's running WM5.0 and AKU2.2 upgrade and we're using the Direct Push Email functionality. It's working great. The problem arises when we put the Apache into the cradle and the cradle is plugged via USB into the laptop. Active Sync tries to sync the laptop to the Apache (totally unnessary). We can cancel the connection and run as a guest user, but then the Direct Push is disabled so we have to manually reset the connection. Is there a better way of doing this?

I'm not sure what else Active Sync can be used for, but right now we will just use it to copy files over to the Apache's flash drive.

I tried unticking the AS on the Apache, but then it won't connect at all.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks
Sandy

Welcome to Geekzone... When you create a partnership on a laptop you have the option to keep the Exchange ActiveSync settings, and only synchronise Files, Favourites with your PC.

I recommend you unplug the Apache, open ActiveSync, delete the partnership and create a new one. You will see the dialog with the Exchange credentials and you just have to accept that. In the next dialog you will see the local sync options, and you can check/uncheck what you need (don't uncheck what's already configured to synchronise with the Exchange server).

Hi there, thanks for that. I thought I tried something like that but it threatened to remove all the emails etc from the Apache. Guess I'll try again and see how it goes.

Thanks Mauricio

It will only remove the e-mails if you change the Exchange ActiveSync options when creating the partnership.
