    I work at home using Windows XP and a remote desktop connection (RDC), specifically Terminal Services. I want to be able to sinc my pda with my Outlook calendar and contacts (don't care about the email) which are located on the remote server. My pda does not support the remote connection, so that is not possible directly. Besides the RDC, we have web Outlook, on which I can get my email, contact, calendar... everything... through the web, without connecting to the server through the RDC. I have set up a pop3 account to download the email to my hard drive, but this is not what I want to do. I keep far too many emails and would just as soon not download them, since all I want downloaded are my calendar and contacts so I can sinc it with my pda. I don't even care that I could not upload from my pda. All I want to do is to get my up-to-date calendar onto my pda, so when I go to meetings I have it with me. It is ok, if I have to enter new calendar items directly through the RDC and not upload from my pda.
    The question is...can I download my calendar and contacts through a pop3 account, or otherwise??? Also, is there a way to do that without downloading the emails?
    Thanks for your help.
