Outlook Sync With Palm -Categories Fix

You syncronize your palm device but the categories to not sync up on your hand held device.

Found this link that was helpful.

When I sync my Palm with Outlook, my categories don't transfer over (my todos are listed under the "unfiled" category). How do I get my categories in the handheld to match my categories in Outlook?

You will need to properly configure PocketMirror in order for your categories to transfer.

You will need to do the following:

1. Go to "PocketMirror Settings" by clicking “Start/Programs/PocketMirror/PocketMirror Settings”.
2. From the “Chapura Settings” screen, select the handheld user name you wish to edit, and click on the “Settings” button.
3. From the “Change Synchronization Preferences” screen, select the Outlook application you wish to edit, and click on the “Change” button.
4. From the "Preference Settings for Outlook …” screen, select the “Categories/Folders” topic.
5. From the “Categories/Folders” screen, select how PocketMirror will synchronize your categories/folders. The options are: "Handheld category = Outlook's 'Categories' field", "Handheld category = user-defined field 'PalmPilot' category", or "Handheld category = Outlook folder" (The last option, "Handheld category = Outlook folder" is a feature which is only available with PocketMirror 3.0 Professional.)
6. Exit PocketMirror, and synchronize.
