Laptop computers enable mobile users to work in multiple locations such as at work, home, a hotel, a customer's office; however, limitations in battery life and network access mean it's not always possible for laptop users to stay online away from the office.

Using Microsoft Windows Mobile software, Motorola has integrated the power of Microsoft ActiveSync technology with its new Windows Mobile-based MPx200 Smartphone, enables mobile users to gain full access to their mail, calendar, and contacts from afar.

Exchange Server 2003 enables any device capable of running the Windows Mobile 2002 or later software such as browser-enabled cell phones or Windows Mobile-based Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) to access corporate Exchange information. All changes made on the wireless device are reflected in the live mailbox and can be seen from a full desktop mail client such as Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 or Microsoft Office Outlook Web Access.

This document describes several aspects of integrating the Windows Mobile software and Exchange Server 2003 infrastructure.
