Microsoft ActiveSync 4.2
ActiveSync is the latest software release for synchronizing Windows Mobile-based devices with Windows XP.
Microsoft ActiveSync provides a great synchronization experience with XP-based PCs and Microsoft Outlook right out of the box. ActiveSync acts as the gateway between your PC and Windows Mobile-based device, enabling the transfer of Outlook information, Office documents, pictures, music, videos and applications from your desktop to your device.
In addition to synchronizing with a desktop PC, ActiveSync can synchronize directly with Microsoft Exchange Server so that you can keep your e-mail, calendar data, notes and contact information updated wirelessly when you're away from your PC.
Changes in ActiveSync 4.2 help resolve connectivity related issues with Microsoft Outlook, proxies, partnerships, and connectivity.
Microsoft Outlook Improvements: Resolves issues relating to error code 85010014.
Proxy/DTPT interaction Improvements: Improved auto configuration of device Connection Manager settings when desktop has no proxy path to the internet.

ActiveSync 4.2 supports PC sync via USB cable, Bluetooth, or infrared connection.
