Finally, after Microsoft raised-up a problem with ActiveSync 4.0 under certain situations, today Microsoft officially made ActiveSync 4.1 available which should fix the problem:
Microsoft ActiveSync provides a great synchronization experience with Windows-based PCs and Microsoft Outlook right out of the box. ActiveSync acts as the gateway between your Windows-based PC and Windows Mobile-based device, enabling the transfer of Outlook information, Office documents, pictures, music, videos and applications from your Desktop to your device. In addition to synchronizing with a desktop PC, ActiveSync can synchronize directly with Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 so that you can keep your E-Mail, Calendar, Notes, and Contacts updated wirelessly when you're away from your PC.
New features include
- New partnership wizard makes syncing easier
- Faster transfer of data files including media
- Ability to sync photos assigned to contacts from Outlook on the desktop
ActiveSync 4.1 supports PC sync via USB cable, Bluetooth or infrared connection and is required to sync Windows Mobile 5.0 devices. However, please keep in mind that with ActiveSync 4, the wireless synchronization capability via W-LAN (and your Desktop, not with your Exchange server) was removed. So if you don't have a Windows Mobile 5.0 device yet and you sync via W-LAN, better don't upgrade!
ActiveSync 4.1 is available in many languages now (way too much to list them all here) and I'm sure you will find yours as well.
