    I have set up a pop/smtp (yahoo) account in Outlook Mobile on my 700wx, and I prefer to only pull down new emails when I select Menu > Send/Receive (even though I have unlimited data).

    However, when I sync my 700wx to the PC I noticed that Outlook Mobile will connect (through the internet, not the radio) and pull down new emails (BTW, E-mail is unchecked in the content sync settings on the PC so it is not coming from Outlook on my PC). This slows down the sync.

    I tried the 3 choices (Automatic/Work Network/The Internet) in Mobile Device Settings > Connection Settings on the PC, but in all 3 cases the 700wx still connected and downloaded the new emails.

    What I found is that if I selected Work instead of The Internet in the 700wx > Outlook Mobile > Menu > Deliver Preferences > Auto Sync tab > Connection it does not pull down emails, but still displays the Connecting message briefly in the Outlook Mobile status-bar. Also, now it says "Can not connect" when I sellect Outlook Mobile > Menu > Send/Receive so I had to switch it back to The Internet.

    Is there a way to do what I want?

    Should I be using ActiveSync 4.5 instead?

    I can answer part of your question.... no, don't use ActiveSync. It's designed for XP. Vista requires WMDC.

    I usaly only do send/receive on way to work in the morning to check for new emails, and during lunch.

    But whenever I sync phone to PC, apparently Outlook mobile decides that internet connection is available and connectes and does send/receive for the configured pop account - this is slow so I do not want it to take place every time I sync.

    Has anyone else run into this and is there a way to turn this off (and it did not seem like it did this in ActiveSync)?
