Overview

PalmOS uses ActiveSync to interact with OIT's Exchange service. With Exchange configured, you will be able to view the account's various mailboxes, and create custom mailboxes.

If you haven't already configured your Palm OS device device to use Exchange or synced it with your computer, follow the directions in this section . If you have previously synced your device with a computer, the instructions might be slightly different.

This tutorial is operating system independent.
