Old devices need not stay in your drawer, if they still work you can still use them.


You’ve resurrected your old Windows Mobile device (in my case it is a palm Treo Pro), you’ve already setup Exchange ActiveSync with your hosted Email account but you have to monitor an additional email address also hosted on, well this guide is for you.


Let’s get to it…

1. Open Messaging and select Setup E-mail


2. Type in your credentials and hit next


3. Uncheck Try to get e-mail settings automatically…


4. Select Internet e-mail


5. Choose your name & display name


6. Incoming mail server = select IMAP4 select next


7. Enter your credentials (again) hit next


8. outgoing mail server: hit next


9. Check Require SSL for both and done


10. You may customize download settings to your liking


There you have it, you now have hosted email on your device together with your EAS email.

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
