BCM with Pocket PC 5.0



  • 1. BCM and backend servers?
    Hello :-) I am trying to figure out of what backend versions that can be used, since I though that BCM could only connect to the database engine that was shipped with it, but this might not be true? Could anyone please fill me in what backend server can be used with any kind of BCM versions, please? Like; 1) Can BCM v1/v2 use SQL 2005 Express instead of MSDE? can it connect to other versions as well? Full version of SQL Server? 2) Can BCM2007 connect to any versions of SQL as well? Can it connect to MSDE? Thanks for any replies! Kind regards, Robert
  • 2. BCM separate database from Outlook?
    I just upgraded from office xp to 2007 and have been using outlook for contact management and email. I have just started learning about what BCM is. Is BCM an outlook add-in that uses the outlook interface but creates a completely separate database with no relation to the outlook database? For example, if I import or copy contacts from outlook into BCM do I now have 2 distinctly separate and unrelated information paths for these contacts? Will a change in a contacts phone number in BCM be changed in Outlook?
  • 3. Views in Business Contact Manager for 2003
    I notice when i open my business contact form that i see a preview of my emails at the bottom (from my inbox). Is there anyway that i can remove this as i can't seem to go to the View menu and customise? Thanks Gillian
  • 4. linking multiple prior appointments to business contacts
    Is there any way to quickly link MULTIPLE prior appointments to business contact records? I was using Outlook 2003 and just upgraded to Outlook 2007 with BCM. I need to go back for the past 6+ months and link my client appointments with my new client business contacts. I have tried lots of things but you have to manually link each individual record and there doesn't appear to be an easy or quick way to do this!
  • 5. Business Contact Manager Slow
    I am experiencing a situation that when the Business contact manager add in is loaded, Outlook starts slow. it also displays a message that reads : Your server adminstrator has limited the number of items you can open simultaneously. Try closing messages you have opened or removing attachments and images from unsent messages you are composing. I have a SBS 2003 server running Exchange 2003, I have a new Sony laptop (one of my users) that is experiencing this problem. When I remove BCM add in everything works quickly. This is worse when the computer is away from the network than when it is on the network. When the user was traveling, the startup time for Outlook reached as long as 15 minutes with BCM and less than 45 seconds without. Any Ideas about how to speed this up and why it is so slow would be helpful. Thank you

I often use voice command for contacts. It appears not to look through the 
Business contacts database using the voice commands for calling.

Is there any way to get this working?

did you ever get a response from anyone. I have the same problem.

1.Remove "Outlook E-Mail" account on Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC

Hi All -

When I purchased my T-Mobile MDA, the account "Outlook E-Mail" did not
exist in list of accounts inside of the Messaging Application.

While experimenting with the device, I allowed it to Synch email with
outlook. After this synch, it created the "Outlook E-Mail" account and

The Sync worked great, but I felt that it was a redundant feature;
since my PPC is always online, it's easier for me to poll my email
account for new emails--I simply don't need to sync with my desktop for

I've now disabled the email sync through ActiveSync, and it warned me
that this would permenantly delete all outlook email on the device,
yadayada, fine.

Now, however, I have a completely empty "Outlook E-mail" account that I
can't get rid of on the device. It doesn't appear in the account list.

This isn't preventing me from doing anything, but it's an annoyance,
and it's visual clutter. I just want these folders to disappear! Why is
it so difficult?

If anyone can give me a hint, let me know. I'm assuming there is some
sort of registry key on the device I need to blow away, but I haven't
found it yet.



2.Business contacts for Pocket PC : supports windows mobile 5.0

3.Pocket PC with Outlook BCM does not allow voice dialing of BCM contacts

Does anyone know if their are plans to extend Pocket PC to allow voice 
dialing of MS Business Contact Manager (BCM) contacts?  The feature is of 
very low value without this capability in my opinion. 

4.Duplicates in BCM 2007 and BCM for Pocket PC 2.0

I'm not sure what is generating the problem but every couple of months I have 
to delete thousands of duplicates from BCM.  I might have 5 duplicates for 
some names and up to 200 duplicates for other names.  I synchronize to my 
Pocket PC so I end up with over 8000 names on my mobile BCM.  Nine out of 10 
records has duplicates.

5.Beta - Synchronizing BCM Contacts with Pocket PC Outlook

I am running the refreshed versions of Outlook Beta 2 and 
BCM. Am using MS Activesync 3.7.

After creating a Business Contact in the BCM folder and 
creating an upcoming appointment, the appointment gets 
synchronized with my main Outlook Calendar, but the 
contact does not get synchronized with my main Outlook 
Contacts folder. I am presuming that this is because 
there is no corresponding Business Contacts folder on my 
Pocket PC.

Does anyone know how to make this synchronization work 
with a Pocket PC.I am running the Pocket PC 2000 version.
