Hello,

I have a little (no BIG!!) problem... Confused
I have created some new Tasks in Outlook 2003 on my PC and want to transfer these to my Pocket PC (HTC TyTN/Windows Mobile 5) via ActiveSync 4.1 - but after that I see that only Tasks without text in the note-field is synchronized to my PocketPC. If I add a little text in the note-field when I create a new task in Outlook - then this task will not be transfered by ActiveSync. On the other hand - all Tasks without notes are synchronized fine.

But the other way round everything goes fine: I can create a new task with text in the note-field in Pocket Informant on my PocketPC - and this Task is transfered fine by ActiveSync to Outlook in my PC?!?!?!?
Is there anybody who have a solution to this problem?

Best regards
Lars - DK

Hi,
Did you try ActiveSync 4.2? This is the latest official release. Also, did you check to see if the notes are larger than 24k? This is the size limit of the device. Finally attachments in the notes are not supported to sync.

Hi Chris,

I have downloaded and installed AS 4.2 but it do not solve the problem.
My notes to the Tasks is just a few words. I do not use attachments.

I can add to my previous question that this problem also exists with notes in Appontments. Besides I have "scanned" a lot of websites and realized that this problem exists with Windows Mobile 5 and that a lot of people have this problem. Do you think Microsoft has heard of it? Maybee you - as a moderator of this Forum - can contact somebody who knows how to solve the problem? Hope to hear from you!

Hi,
All I can suggest is to try exporting the Tasks and then reimport them to see if that resolves the problem. If it does not then try contacting the OEM of your device for assistance.

It's about 2 weeks ago I asked my question. In the meantime my problem is solved by foramtting my harddisk and reinstalling WindowsXP. Now the notes in Tasks and Appointments are tranferred normaly. It was not ActiveSync or my HTC TyTN which failed but some kind of failure on my Windows PC. I do not know what was wrong precisely but besides my primary problem with the transfer to my Pocket PC I also had problems with printing out e-mails and with navigating on certain websites. Therefore I chose to format my HD and reinstall WindowsXP!
