ActiveSync with PC & Exchange

For those of us that use smartphones (or pocket pcs) out there and want to synchronize their contacts and calendar between their main work Exchange account and their home email account via their home computer activesync partnership – whether it be another Exchange account just a POP account in Outlook, here is a way to quickly enable this. Unfortunately it’s not set by default (arg!) but can be quickly changed by using any number of smartphone registry applications. This also applies to Pocket PCs or other Windows Mobile phones.

The following key needs to be set:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ActiveSync\EnableNonLocalCrossPollination]
Type: DWORD
Value: 1

Once you have the key set, you can then go via the phone into the activesync tool – then click on the options… Here you can then go through the check-boxes to enable sync to the “other” connection (typically the computer partnership) and select which options you want to synchronize.

I typically do this so that I can synchronize my phone’s contacts & calendar to my Microsoft exchange account and my personal computer at home.
