MS ActiveSync only allows sync of primary tasks and contacts folders?

    I have MS ActiveSync 3.7.1 Build 3244. I can't find any options to
    synchronize not only my primary tasks and contacts folders in my MS Outlook
    2003, but also additional tasks and contacts folders I've created. For
    example, I have a "Personal Tasks" and a "Personal Contacts" folder in my MS
    Outlook 2003 that don't get synchronized with my Toshiba e740 running MS
    Pocket PC 2002.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    ActiveSync will synchronize only the main
    Contacts/Calendar/Tasks folder. It does not support
    synchronization of local folders created by you on your
    desktop.

    You can use use Pocket Contact Synchronizer 1.2 (add-in for Outlook) to
    synchronize the sub folders of Contacts ---

    If you want to synchronize other subfolders, then you will need third party
    applications --

    Pocket OnSchedule ---

    Pocket Lookout ---

    ActiveSync has options for synchronizing categories in
    Contacts/Calendar/Tasks. Do take a look at the following links for better
    understanding on how categories can be used ---

    I agree with you about the pocket contact sync but the
    problem is that if you have Office 2003 you can't install
    pocket sync. Has anyone else had any luck with installing
    OPCS with Office 2003?
