I'm unclear on a few basic points about the relationship or\ninter-dependency (if any) between Outlook and AS. My Outlook 2002\noriginally came with my iPAQ 2210 Pocket Computer many years ago. That's\nlong since been replaced by an HTC Touch Pro 2 running under Windows\nMobile 6.1, supplemented by ActiveSync 4.5.0.\n\n1. Must Outlook always be running for AS to work?\n\n2. I assume it must always be running for Tasks and Appointment reminders\nto be displayed (because occasionally, when deliberately starting it, I\nget several out-of-date messages). Is there any way around that?\n\n3. Assuming not, is the CPU and memory resource significant?\n\nAny advice would be much appreciated please.
