OK, what I'm trying to do is difficult for me to describe, but here goes:

I'm using Outlook. I have an Exchange server at work, and Outlook is connected to it in cached mode. I have created a separate local PST file that I would like to sync to my phone for Calendar, Contacts, Tasks, and Notes. The reason for this is that I do not want my calendar, etc, going onto the Exchange server. I don't need to sync email since I can just get my email wirelessly on the phone.

Is it possible to have Outlook connected to an Exchange Server, but then sync a phone to a different PST file and not the Exchange server?

Hi,
You can sync with Exchange directly and one PC via ActiveSync or WMDC.

By "directly" do you mean over-the-air?

I apologize if I'm not being clear. I want to sync with only ONE computer, therefore one copy of Outlook. I want to have access to my Exchange server via Outlook, but I want to sync the phone to a different PST file that is NOT connected to Exchange.

Since you can have multiple PST's open within Outlook, I want to have Activesync sync with one of them even though there is an Exchange mailbox listed there too.

Essentially, I want DO NOT want to sync with Exchange, even though there is an Exchange mailbox in Outlook.

Hi,
By default ActiveSync will not let you merge data from two different Exchange PST files. There is a registry key to allow this. It is listed on the ActiveSync FAQ.
