My first issue is getting my Tasks on the "Homescreen." It would just be nice to have them available at a glance, rather than having to enter the Start menu.
Next, and perhaps the most problematic issue, is with my e-mail. Mine is a small office, so we do not use an Exchange server. Ours is a POP3 email account. We also use MSOutlook 2003 on our desktop machines. These are set to retrieve email from the server every minute and delete them from the server when they are in Outlook. When I got the phone, I set it to leave messages on the server for 7 days, so the phone could retrieve them. This is all fine, except that this doubles the emails - a copy on the phone and a copy on my desktop). This becomes a problem when I am out of the office for a few days and sort through a few hundred emails and delete the ones I am through with on the phone. Then, when I get back in the office, I have to resort the damn things and delete the ones from my desktop Outlook. A real time waster.
Is there a way to have MSOutlook communicate directly from my desktop to the phone without a server? In the alternative, is there a way to sync the POP3 account on my phone with the Inbox of my MSOutlook? Either is good.
The cheapest solutions to these issues are best.
Thanks for all of the help.
