'Over-the-air' ActiveSync issue with CDOEx coded appointments RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm using CDOEx on Exchange 2003 to add an appointment to a users calendar from a VS2005 C# project.  That's working fine.  However when I sync the calendar to my Windows Mobile 5 Pocket PC Phone 'over the air' I have a problem.  It's taking 2 syncs for the device to be happy with the appointment.  The second sync seems to be initiated by Exchange as the schedule is set to 'As Items Arrive'.

    If I open the appointment in Outlook before initiating a sync (schedule = 'Every 5 Minutes'), and close it, (I make no changes so I'm not promped to save anything) the appointment will sync the first time and no second sync is necessary.

    Appointments that I add in Outlook sync the first time and no second sync is necessary.

    I've compared all the field values in the CDOEx Appointment object's field collection; reading them back immediately after saving a new appointment and again after syncing, and they are identical apart from the 'urn:schemas:mailheader:thread-index' field.

    Can anyone help please.

    Best Regards,
