Synchronize HTC in Vista

If you are having problems synchronizing your HTC (WM6) phone with Vista using Activesync, here is a simple solution for you.

Activesync does not work with Vista and WMDC does not seem to help you. Well you can check the CD that came with your HTC phone (my reference cell is HTC Touch GSM). Install the WMDC drivers from the WMDC folder on the CD. After that restart your system.

Now plugin your HTC and follow the on screen instructions. It is very easy to setup synchronization this day rather than using 3rd party softwares.

QMAIL v3.0.0

QMAIL is a communications program which deserves to be more well known: it supports POP3, IMAP4, NNTP & RSS protocols.
Installation simply involves copying the files to the Pocket PC. The mail client pleasantly surprised me: besides IMAP4 support, it supports SSL/TLS authenication (which makes it compatible with GMail, but this requires a seperate download), filters and all the configuration options that you could imagine. HTML support is still not working for the Pocket PC. Neither is the ability to compose scripts. To read a RSS feed, you only need to create an account and choose RSS in the “Class” menu. When you return to the main screen you choose the account that you just created, tap and hold to bring up “Create” and voila, after entering the name of the feed, you only have to give the URL. The interface is not bad: you click on the title to see the contents, providing quick access. It should be said here that the author’s website would help you much since it is all in Japanese and there is no configuration guidelines. An app that appears to be well-features (maybe too much) and so we should spend some time trying it out. Read this tutorial if you are interested in this feeware. For users with other OS version (eg. Pocket PC / 2003 / 2003 SE, etc.) please download the software here.
