I’ve been struggling with a few connection problems trying to sync my SmartPhone to Outlook in recent weeks but since I was already running ActiveSync 3.7.1 there wasn’t much to be done.
It appears that Microsoft make reasonably silent releases of ActiveSync. I downloaded 3.7.1 again and ran the installer: it told me I already had 3.7.1 installed but I could go ahead and reinstall it. When I did and checked the about box I now have a much higher build number and the connection seems much snappier now. Who knew? I guess I’ll be keeping a closer eye on it now.
