If your computer shuts down because of low battery conditions, your com-
puter does not operate. This is done to ensure that data is protected. Al-
though the battery does protect the data against loss for several hours, you
should connect your computer to a power source when you first detect a
low battery condition.
Your computer contains an internal super capacitor, a temporary power
storage device, that protects data for up to ten minutes. This is to give you
time to replace the main battery pack before that data is lost. Be sure to put
the computer in a suspend mode before doing so.
If you have at least one device in your 700 Color Computer (radio, scan-
ner, imager, or Ethernet), the battery power fail level is set so that after the
system shuts down in a low battery condition, there is still sufficient charge
to allow the unit to remain configured, keep proper time, and maintain
DRAM (Dynamic Random Access Memory) for at least 23 to 32 hours at
room temperature if the main battery remains in the mobile computer.
The configuration and time are lost if:
SThe battery discharges beyond this level.
SThe battery is removed when the computer is not in suspend mode.
SA cold reset is performed on the computer.
You can modify RAM maintenance in a limited way. On the 700 Color
Computer, tap Start >Settings >theSystem tab>thePower icon > the
Battery tab. Drag the top slider bar to the right to change the suspend
voltage to favor suspend time over rundown time, then click ok to exit.

Resetting Your 700 Color Computer
Performing a Warm-Boot
Performing a warm-boot may be necessary to correct conditions where an
application stops responding to the system. It does, however, unload all
running programs.
Press and hold the I/O key for about ten seconds, then the 700 Color
Computer continues from the screen you were at before you performed
the warm-boot.
Performing a Cold-Boot
In some cases where the 700 Color Computer completely stops respond-
ing, it may be necessary to perform a cold-boot. Because this may result in
data loss, this procedure is not recommended unless all other recovery
methods have failed.
Note: This deletes all programs and data stored in RAM including the Ob-
ject Store. Make sure data is backed up to your host computer or a storage
card before performing a cold-boot.

Tips for getting good recognition:
SWrite neatly.
SWrite on the lines and draw descenders below the line. Write the cross
of the “t” and apostrophes below the top line so they are not confused
with the word above. Write periods and commas above the baseline.
SFor better recognition, try increasing the zoom level to 300% by using
the Tools menu. Recognition does not work well below a 150% zoom
level.
SWrite the letters of a word closely and leave big gaps between words so
that the 700 Color Computer can easily tell where words begin and end.
SHyphenated words, foreign words that use special characters such as ac-

Microsoft ActiveSync
Visit the following Microsoft Web site for the latest in updates, technical
information, and samples:
www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/resources/communities/default.mspx
Using Microsoft ActiveSync, you can synchronize the information on your
desktop with the information on your 700 Color Computer. Synchroniza-
tion compares the data on your 700 Color Computer with your desktop
and updates both computers with the most recent information. For exam-
ple:
SKeep Pocket Outlook data up-to-date by synchronizing your 700 Color
Computer with Microsoft Outlook data on your desktop.
SSynchronize Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel files between your
700 Color Computer and desktop. Your files are automatically con-
verted to the correct format.
Note: By default, ActiveSync does not automatically synchronize all types
of information. Use ActiveSync options to turn synchronization on and off
for specific information types.
With ActiveSync, you can also:
SBack up and restore your 700 Color Computer data.
SCopy (rather than synchronize) files between your 700 Color Computer
and desktop.
SControl when synchronization occurs by selecting a synchronization
mode. For example, you can synchronize continually while connected to
your desktop or only when you choose the synchronize command.
SSelect which information types are synchronized and control how much
data is synchronized. For example, you can choose how many weeks of
past appointments you want synchronized.
Before you begin synchronization, install ActiveSync on your desktop from
the Windows Mobile Companion CD. For more information on installing
ActiveSync, see your Quick Start card. ActiveSync is already installed on
your 700 Color Computer.
After installation is complete, the ActiveSync Setup Wizard helps you con-

your desktop, and customize your synchronization settings. Your first syn-
chronization process automatically begins when finished using the wizard.
After your first synchronization, look at Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks on
your 700 Color Computer. Notice that information you have stored in
Microsoft Outlook on your desktop was copied to your 700 Color Com-
puter, and you did not have to type a word. Disconnect the 700 Color
Computer from your computer and you are ready to go!

Synchronizing Notes
Notes can be synchronized between your desktop and device either
through notes synchronization or file synchronization. Notes synchroniza-
tion synchronizes the notes on your 700 Color Computer with Outlook
Notes on your desktop. File synchronization synchronizes all notes on
your700ColorComputerwiththeMyDocumentsfolderforthe700
ColorComputeronyourdesktop.
To synchronize your notes through notes synchronization, first select the
Notes information type for synchronization in ActiveSync. The next time
you synchronize, all notes in My Documents and its subfolder on your
device appear in Outlook Notes on your desktop. Notes that contain only
text appear as regular notes in Outlook on your desktop, while notes con-
taining written text or drawings appear in the device format. In addition,
all notes in the Notes group in Outlook on the desktop appear in Notes on
the device.
To synchronize your notes as files, in ActiveSync, select the Files informa-
tion type for synchronization and clear the Notes information type. When
you select Files, the My Documents folder for the 700 Color Computer is
created on your desktop. All .PWI files placed in the My Documents fold-
er on your device and all .DOC files placed in the My Documents folder
forthe700ColorComputeronyourdesktoparesynchronized.Password-
protected files cannot be synchronized.
ActiveSync converts documents during synchronization. For more infor-
mation on synchronization or file conversion, see ActiveSync Help on the
desktop.
Note: When you delete or change an item on either your desktop or 700
Color Computer, the item is changed or deleted in the other location the
next time you synchronize.
Note: If you synchronize your notes using file synchronization and then
later decide to use notes synchronization, all of your notes are synchro-
nized with Outlook on your desktop and no longer store in the My Docu-
ments folder for the 700 Color Computer.

Inbox: Sending and Receiving E-mail Messages
To switch to Inbox on your 700 Color Computer, tap Start >Inbox.
You can receive Internet e-mail messages and SMS messages in Inbox. In-
ternet e-mail messages are sent by using an address you receive from your
Internet service provider (ISP) or your employer. SMS messages are sent
and received through your wireless phone service provider by using a
phone number as the message address.
You can send and receive e-mail by synchronizing with your desktop, or
by connecting to a Post Office Protocol 3 (POP3) or Internet Message Ac-
cess Protocol 4 (IMAP4) mail server. You need to set up an e-mail account
for each method that you use except for Microsoft ActiveSync, which is set
upbydefault.TheActiveSyncfolderonyour700ColorComputerstores
messages that you send and receive through synchronization with a desk-
top. Account names appear as folders in the folder list (located on the left,
under the navigation bar) in the Inbox message list.
With synchronization, messages are synchronized between the device In-
box and the PC Inbox by using ActiveSync and Microsoft Exchange or
Microsoft Outlook. For more information, see “Synchronizing E-mail Mes-
sages”below.
When connecting to a POP3 or IMAP4 server, you use a modem to con-
nect to your Internet service provider (ISP), or a modem or Ethernet card
to connect to the local area network to which your e-mail server is connec-
ted. You can also use your phone to connect by using a cellular line con-
nection. For more information, see “Connecting to a Mail Server”onpage
79.
Synchronizing E-mail Messages
After selecting Inbox for synchronization in ActiveSync, e-mail messages
are synchronized as part of the general synchronization process. During
synchronization:
SMessages are copied from the Inbox folder on your desktop or the
Microsoft Exchange server to the Inbox folder on your 700 Color Com-
puter. (Note that you can only synchronize information directly with an
Exchange Server if your company is running Microsoft Mobile Infor-
mation Server 2002 or later.) By default, you receive messages from the
last three days only, the first 100 lines of each new message, and file at-
tachmentsoflessthan100KBinsize.
SMessages in the Outbox folder on your device are transferred to Ex-
change or Outlook and then sent from those programs.
SThe messages on the two computers are linked. When you delete a mes-
sage on your 700 Color Computer, it is deleted from your desktop the
next time you synchronize.
SMessages in subfolders in other e-mail folders in Outlook are synchro-
nized only if they were selected for synchronization in ActiveSync.
For information on initiating Inbox synchronization or changing synchro-
nization settings, see ActiveSync Help on your desktop or select Start >
Help >Connections to see Connections Help.

Managing E-mail Messages and Folders
Each e-mail account and SMS account has its own folder hierarchy with
fivedefaultfolders:Inbox,Outbox,DeletedItems,Drafts,andSentItems.
The messages you receive and send through the mail account are stored in
these folders. You can also create additional folders within each hierarchy.
The Deleted Items folder contains messages that were deleted on the de-
vice. The behavior of the Deleted Items and Sent Items folders depends on
the Inbox options you have chosen.
The behavior of the folders you create depends on whether you are using
ActiveSync,SMS,POP3,orIMAP4.
SIf you use ActiveSync,
e-mail messages in the Inbox folder in Outlook automatically synchro-
nize with your device. You can select to synchronize additional folders
by designating them for ActiveSync. The folders you create and the
messages you move are then mirrored on the server. For example, if you
movetwomessagesfromtheInboxfoldertoafoldernamedFamily,
and you have designated Family for synchronization, the server creates a
copy of the Family folder and copies the messages into that folder. You
can then read the messages while away from your desktop.
SIf you use SMS,
messages are stored in the Inbox folder.
SIf you use POP3
and you move e-mail messages to a folder you created, the link is broken
between the messages on the device and their copies on the mail server.
The next time you connect, the mail server sees that the messages are
missing from the device Inbox and deletes them from the server. This
prevents you from having duplicate copies of a message, but it also
means that you no longer have access to messages that you move to fold-
ers created from anywhere except the 700 Color Computer.
SIf you use IMAP4,
the folders you create and the e-mail messages you move are mirrored
on the server. Therefore, messages are available to you anytime you con-
nect to your mail server, whether it is from your 700 Color Computer
or desktop. This synchronization of folders occurs whenever you con-
nect to your mail server, create new folders, or rename or delete folders
when connected.
For all accounts except ActiveSync, you can access folder options by tap-
ping Tools >Manage Folders.
Windows Mobile 2003Chapter 2
79700 Series Color Mobile Computer User’s Manual
Connecting to a Mail Server
In addition to synchronizing e-mail messages with your desktop, you can
send and receive e-mail messages by connecting to an e-mail server using a
modem or network card connected to your 700 Color Computer. You
need to set up a remote connection to a network or an ISP, and a connec-
tion to your e-mail server. For more information, see “Getting Connected
on page 100.
When you connect to the e-mail server, new messages are downloaded to
the 700 Color Computer Inbox folder, messages in the 700 Color Com-
puter Outbox folder are sent, and messages that were deleted on the e-mail
server are removed from the 700 Color Computer Inbox folder.
Messages that you receive directly from an e-mail server are linked to your
e-mail server rather than your desktop. When you delete a message on
your 700 Color Computer, it is also deleted from the e-mail server the
next time you connect based on the settings selected in ActiveSync.
You can work online or offline. When working online, you read and re-
spond to messages while connected to the e-mail server. Messages are sent
as soon as you tap Send, which saves space on your 700 Color Computer.
When working offline, once you have downloaded new message headers or
partial messages, you can disconnect from the e-mail server and then de-
cide which messages to download completely. The next time you connect,
Inbox downloads the complete messages you have marked for retrieval and
sends the messages you have composed.
