Yet again we are given another version (4.5) of Activestink which fails to syncronise Outlook Notes.

I have been using SmartphoneNotes (3rd party software) on my previous phones but cant get it recognise the software on the phone when it syncs.

Can somebody try this out on their Lobster

When installed Active sync should give you the option to sync Notes (visable under Tools options)

Thanks

Unfortunately I do not use Activesync now as I have Vista installed.

Ditto...

If you can't sync notes, can you not just save the contents of them in an email to yourself or something like that as a workaround?

I always found that Notes not syncing was down to corruption in Outlook... Maybe consider backing up your PST file, and then running ScanPST, see if picks up any corruptions, and then fix them.

Worth a try, eh!

Eh? ...I thought Activesync didnt support syncing of Outlook Notes ?

Why did I purchase a 3rd party program to sync Notes up ??

I was sure AS in XP didnt support notes too - contacts, mail, appointments and tasks but not notes?

Hmm, i thought that AS would sync only Voice Notes using Smartphone's but PDA's could sync note Notes?

I'll have a play at work tomorrow if i get the time, and see what is what...

From memory that's what I thought, the same applies with the back-up feature of older versions of Activesync.
