Fixes date issue on new SMS

I've made a few tiny cosmetic changes to the desktop application and re-built the Pocket PC application to make sure it is Compact Framework 2.0.
Version 2.01c PocketSMS.cab
New version of the inthehand library so it should work better )
Version 2.01b PocketSMS.cab
I've added a new PDA version with a tiny fix for people with no inbox folders.
just install this instead of the cab with 2.01.
I've gone back to an earlier release of the inthehand library and deleted one line of my code.
I've finished putting the menus back together that I broke when making the app pretty.
Message Interception now should work better and not crash the app.
I've upgraded the design and fixed a few issues. Many of the (context) menu actions don't work at the moment but will as soon as I get round to them.
I found I needed to soft-reset my device after the install.
If you have used previous version then copy your original sms.xml and contacts.xml files to the new program directory on your desktop before you run the application the first time.
Version 1.12 (removed)
1. More Error checking.
2. Excel Export
3. Extended character support.
I've added a Smartphone 1.11 cab file.
This has the new inthehand library which solves a major issue with sendind SMS messages.
It need to access your phone number. On some phones it does this by accessing the SIM card on others it gets the number from the Owner information.
Hopefully this will solve the Connection problem one or several people have been having.
Fixed the invalidcast problem and tidied up the communication from the pda to the desktop.
Version 1.07a Desktop and 1.07 Pocket PC release.
27th Oct Added more error trapping to the pocket pc application, now added a smartphone 1.07 release. Smartphone users need to get the desktop application from the other zip file.
I've tidied a few things up and fixed a few reported bugs.
I'm looking for feedback now on what people would like next.
Pocket SMS V1.06 (Alpha) is available.( removed the binaries)
V1.06 takes some of the processing off the phone and moves it to the desktop so the performance is so much better.
Just added PocketSMS_Smartphone_105.zip This contains a totally untested build for the smartphone.
Install the PocketSMS_SmartPhone.Cab on your device. You may need to install the inthehand.mobile.2.1.cab too.
Pocket SMS is a desktop SMS Manager designed to interface directly with Pocket PC Phones.

Telephone a contact
For Pocket SMS to work you must be connected via Activesync or, for Vista users, Windows Mobile Device Centre 6.1 (or better).
The software comes in two parts: the desktop Manager and the pocket pc client. You must install the PocketSMS.Cab on your mobile device and the SMSManager.msi on your desktop. In addition if you have not already installed Compact Framework 3.5 on your mobile then run NETCFSetupv35.msi on your desktop to do the installation. You can doenload the Compact Framework here:
The first time you connect, depending on the performance of your phone and the number of messages in your SMS folders, Pocket SMS can take quite a few minutes to “look” as if it’s working ….. be patient.
Your Contacts can be downloaded by using File\Synchronise Contacts.
You can view all the contacts by double clicking on "Contacts" in the view.
You can create as many Distribution Lists as you like and Lists can contain more lists or people. You can drag and drop people or messages into any list.
I'm adding more features as I can and still trying to improve the reliabliity.
Let me know what changes you would like.
