    ActiveSync on my windows smartphone will only sync with Outlook. I have Home

    & Student Office 2007 which doesn't have outlook; it has Windows Live Mail

    instead. So I either have to buy Outlook and transfer everything there or

    once again live with multiple prgms for viewing & managing contacts, emails,

    etc. What can I do?

    AFAIK, the sync center only works with Outlook, so if you need to buy

    outlook if you want to sync calendar and contacts, but you should check with

    the pocketpc experts to be sure.

    You've stated your choices. ActiveSync works only with Outlook.

    Does your phone work with Gmail? A lot of them do. If so, create a

    Gmail account and import everything there. For free. You can still

    Send As your WLM account in Gmail if you choose to.

    A month before I picked up my smart phone (Palm Pre), I created a Gmail

    account and set up my 9 email accounts to work within it, and set up a

    single contact list that I imported everything from my prior phone and

    email client. All I had to do on my Pre was enter my login info and it

    interfaces with Gmail perfectly. No longer do I have email contacts on

    my mail client, phone contacts on a phone, etc etc. No more syncing

    back and forth. Made my life much simpler.
