Email Field in Contacts
When you enter a new contact on your hpc which contains an e-mail address, this e-mail address is not automatically added to your outlook address book when you do the synchronization with outlook using the new version of hpc explorer. In order for outlook address book to recognize the e-mail field in the new contact, you must first open and edit the e-mail field in the recently transfered contact and then save it. THEN and only then does it automatically show up in the contacts address book as an smtp item.

Outlook Express Contacts to H/PC
This is a method to Synchronize your Outlook Express address book to your H/PC Contacts.
Step 1 - From OUTLOOK EXPRESS, select File > Export > Address Book... > Text File (Comma Separated Values).
Step 2 - Select a Filename and location for the ???.csv file.
Step 3 - From SCHEDULE+, select File > Import > Text...
Step 4 - Browse to find file created in Step 2. Click "Next".
Step 5 - Select "Yes" to identify first line of data as a list of field names (default). Click "Next".
Step 6 - Select "Comma" as separator, and accept " as character used to surround text fields (both default). Click "Next".
Step 7 - Select "Contact List" as type of data. Click "Next".
Step 8 - A window will come up with the field names from your ???.csv file on the left and "IGNORE THIS FIELD" on the right. For each field you want to use from the left, you must click on "IGNORE ..." and select a matching field name from the pull-down menu. Some fields may not have an identical match, so either "IGNORE" or pick a "User Field #" or another field that suits your need.
Step 9 - After matching up the field names, click "Finish". Your Contacts will be updated.
Step 10 - Synchronize your H/PC with your desktop PC. Done!
Caveat: This was accomplished on my HP Jornada 680, running Windows CE, Handheld PC Edition 3.01. Desktop machine is Pentium II running Windows NT 4.0. Schedule+ Version 7.0a was installed from Windows CE Services 2.2 with ActiveSync CD-ROM that came with Jornada. Bought the machine last night, and just now figured out how to pull this little trick off. I am not a programmer. I do not work for any party even remotely associated with the manufacture, sale, development, programming or distribution of any hardware or software mentioned here. All trademarks blah, blah, blah.
