Email and the handheld PC

This tip provides some advice for syncing up desktop and handheld email.

Email and the handheld PC
Adesh Rampat

Handheld PCs offer the user the capability to constantly have e-mail available by synchronizing between itself and the desktop. In most instances the user probably will not require all of the mail to be downloaded to the handheld PC. In that case a rule can be created that will be able to send certain messages to a folder that can then be downloaded to the handheld PC.

Email with attachments, on the other hand, can be a problem when synchronizing mail with the handheld PC. The attachment will, in most cases, need to be removed, because most handheld PCs cannot receive e-Email with large attachments. Removing an attachment can simply be done by right clicking on the attachment and selecting remove.

But what if the remove option is not present? The user can select either cut or clear. Note however that when cutting, large attachments may be placed on the clipboard, using up a lot of memory.

To clear memory perform the following steps whilst on the message screen:

Click on view/Toolbars
Select Clipboard
Click the Clear Clipboard button.
