rk-OSR version 1.0.10 Automatic windows mobile outlook mail and exchange active synchronizer.

Here is a application I developed for my personal use now sharing with you all for non commercial use.
I basically use this utility to check emails from multiple email accounts from my windows mobile device using the wifi, gprs networks

You can even perform Exchange Active Sync too!



Feature list
  • Works on windows mobile 5 and 6.
  • Can sync up multiple email accounts at multiple schedules setup.
  • Can perform Exchange Active Sync.
  • Connect using: Wi-Fi only, Wi-Fi if not GPRS, Manual Wi-Fi, Gprs Only or Existing connection(USB)
  • Switch off GPRS/3G after sync
  • Option not to sync during Saturdays and Sundays
  • Get notified on emails or failed attempts
  • Get notified with custum sound(wav files).
  • Keeps device 'Alive' till all the accounts have been synchronized.
  • Supports 'Silent' mode.
  • Supports command line initiation.
  • Supports one touch* email checking(one touch on the shortcut connects to wi-fi network and switches between accounts and synchronizes and then hangs up wi-fi)
  • Can be set to sync only if device sleeping.
  • Does not write anything to registry.
  • Does not run in background.(works on notifications)
  • You can uninstall the application from ‘Remove programs’ and delete the application directory.
Installation:
Install the cab file attached below

After installation launch the program rk-OSR from the programs and go thru each tab page to configure it and finally save the settings (make sure the Enable check box is checked) test the functionality if working properly. Then close the application. Now the sync should happen at next specified schedule.



*One touch synchronization: A Very good feature for people checking mail manually, so that you do not have to switch accounts and click the sync menu each time or start/stop wifi etc, just one click to do that now. You can also assign this shortcut to hardware buttons. The new install adds a new program icon called ‘rk-OSR-Now’ to your programs list. But you need to do the following procedure done before attempting ‘rk-OSR-Now’ shortcut.
  • You should configure the ‘rk-OSR’, and make sure it is working properly and you are able to synchronize your accounts properly.
  • You must edit the shortcut, rk-OSR-Now; add additional text “Now” without quotes. Basically your target should read as below
    "\Program Files\rk-OSR\rk-OSR.exe" Now
Hope it is simple to configure.
I have been using it on TyTn with WM6.
By the way this is my first WM application!;)

Code:
Following command lines supported
"\Program Files\rk-OSR\rk-OSR.exe" Now ---> Checks the mail manually
"\Program Files\rk-OSR\rk-OSR.exe" Enable --> Enables the rk-OSR
"\Program Files\rk-OSR\rk-OSR.exe" Disable --> Disables the rk-OSR

Update: 1.0.10
Added better file browser to locate the *.wav files
Fixed the bug with the 'Wait time to Sync'

Email.zip is a sound wav file 'You got mail' (ofcourse female voice! ;) )

Note: this application requires Compact Framework 2.0
You need compact framework 2.0 installed inorder to run this application. The compact framework is already part of WM6, so if your device is WM6 skip this step. But most of the WM5 devices do not have this update. So you must download here and run the installation on your desktop (then active sync to update your device). Only after completing this step install the application.

New: If you want 'Push Like Mail' support please follow the application link to rk-SMS Switch

I have synchronization problems whith gprs connection and activesync.
I try it you software....
Thank you.

If you have synchronization problems already the rk-OSR might not work for you.
rk-OSR just schedules the outlook synchonizations, all the sync logic is on the outlook, not in rk-OSR

First you have to fix the problem with your sync, then only you could use rk-OSR

Update 1.0.2

There was a bug..
If you used Wifi to sync then any subsequent attempt to switch on wifi using the communication manager would fail(till soft reset:eek: )

Its fixed in version 1.0.2 now :)

let me see if I understand this app correctly before testing it :
At a given schedule it will turn on wifi
Synch
disconnect wifi

Right ?

What if im not at home at the time, so dont have wifi, will it default to GPRS ?

What happens to the schedule I have allready set in activesync ?

Right now i have just scheduled in active synch. So it uses either wifi provided I turned it on when i got home or if not turned on, GPRS.

thks

Question:

Hi there tytnguy, I've got a question:

I'd like to use your app; I have an exchange account for work; but for my private mail I use the Outlook Mobile. The problem is that when I set it to sync every 30 minutes or so; it keeps doing that during the night; waking me (an the misses) every time someone tries to sell me Viagra, Russian brides or weight-loss pills.

The times you enter in the "schedule-tab"; are those the exact times that the app will sync? Or are those the times between which the "outlook-Mobile schedule" will be active?

BTW: looks brilliant for a first-timer!

Exact time on which you want the schedule to occur.

Thank you

Sure, in active sync, in the email properties you can say check for new mail every 4 hours or2 hours etc.., and determine settiings for peek, and off peek days/times.
It then checks if i have new email according to this, using either wifi provided I leave it on, or gprs if wifi is off.

I dont think I setup anything specific really...
If Wifi is avaialble and the phone is connected to my acees point at home it uses wifi to connect to the internet and so on
If its not, it goes through connecting to the net via GPRS

Im running WM6 by the way.
