Hi there,

I'm having an issue synchronizing large contact notes fields through Exchange ActiveSync via 3G.  There are quite a few entries being synchronized but the calendar (approx. 6000 entries) & the email synchronize without issue.  However, whilst the contacts (approx. 1500 entries) appear to synchronize without issue.  However, the notes field within some contacts is being truncated and a message ('The field has been truncated. If changes are made they will override the server entries') appears at the bottom of the field.  The notes field may be large (approx. 5200 chars on one particular entry) but this was not a problem for an XDA running Windows Mobile 2003.  Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, there's a limit in the size of notes that can synchronised. Interesting that you didn't have this problem with your previous Pocket PC...

Thanks for the update. You're right it is odd, as the user in question only enters these notes via his pocket pc.  It would be helpful to have this character limit.  Do you know what it is?

Cheers in advance
