Question about Palm Zire 71 Handheld
I have a user with a Palm Zire71, we use Outlook2002 & the user's mailbok in on an exchange server in NY. We are in London. Each time the Palm is synched, pocket mirror goes through every item in the calandar. Each sync takes around 20 mins. What's going wrong?

Copied from the chepura site: These abbreviations indicate a certain type of synchronization. 1. "Forced Recovery Sync" or "–RS" indicates a Recovery Synchronization. This will occur in the following instances: * It is the very first synchronization. * There was an error during the previous synchronization. * The "Category/Folder" setting has been changed. * The Root Folder has been changed. * A record count mismatch occur has occurred. * The "Handheld Priority" has been changed. * The User Name has been deleted from Chapura Settings. 2. The "–SS" indicates a Slow Synchronization or Slow Sync. Note: A Slow Sync is necessary and does not indicate a problem with synchronization. A Slow Sync will occur in the following instances: * If you synchronize your handheld at one PC and then synchronize it at another PC, the first time you sync at the second PC it will do a Slow Sync. * The first sync after changing the HotSync action from "Do Nothing" to "Synchronize" the files. * The option to synchronize every so many days has been selected. * The first sync after a synchronization that failed. 3. The "Update Sync" will occur when the following changes have been made in "Chapura Settings": * The Location Delimiter has been changed. * The Meetings prefix, "Mtg:" has been added to meetings that have attendees in Outlook. * Private Items are filtered. * The settings for the Transfer of Alarms has been changed. 4. The "–HP" indicates that your synchronization option was set to "Handheld Overwrites PC". 5. The "-PH" indicates that your synchronization option was set to "PC Overwrites Handheld". 6. The "HH" you see during a synchronization indicates the software is reading items from the handheld. 7. The "OL" you see during a synchronization indicates the software is reading items from Outlook. These are only informational messages and do not indicate there was a problem during the synchronization.

The HotSync software on the Mac was never designed to cope with the scenario where you synch with a PC elsewhere. It assumes that you are performing a recovery synchronization when it sees that the handheld synched elsewhere. The assumption with the Palm OS was always that you synched one computer to one PDA. With more propsperous times, the software has not yet evolved at Palm Source (not part of Palm Inc any longer.) With regards to PocketMirror, there is a setting to allow you to synch to more than one PC. The setting is buried deep in the PocketMirror settings for each of the four conduits. The setting allows PocketMirror to see more than one PC as your route to an Exchange server.
