Cool Tool: Access the Exchange Global Address List from the Pocket PC
The Pocket PC doesn't allow you to look up names in the Exchange address list or invite other people to meetings. I have worked around the problem by importing the users I work with the most as contacts in Outlook. But no matter how many people I import; Murphy's law makes sure that I have not imported the address I need when I am out of office. Mike recently found a free tool from Microsoft that fixes the problems; the Microsoft Global Contact Access. It is intended for the Pocket PC Phone Edition, but it works like a charm on normal Pocket PCs as well if you can access internet via Bluetooth or WiFi.
Microsoft Global Contact Access installs several new applications on the Pocket PC:
- Find Contact Online
- New Email
- New Meeting; allows you to schedule meetings and check the availability of co-workers online
It also integrates with the Inbox and adds "Email with Find contact", and "New meeting" menu options.
A must have tool if you use Microsoft Exchange
