This topic explains how to use Microsoft Windows Mobile to configure synchronization options for users.

Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync can synchronize e-mail messages, contacts, calendar items, and tasks between a user's Microsoft Exchange mailbox and their mobile device. Exchange ActiveSync cannot synchronize Microsoft Outlook Notes to a mobile device.

There are a variety of different devices that use Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync and synchronize with Exchange Server 2007. The steps in this topic are designed for Windows Mobile 5.0.

For information about how to configure devices that do not use Windows Mobile, or devices that use versions of Windows Mobile other than Windows Mobile 5.0 to synchronize with Exchange Server, see the device documentation.
