  1. I need to export or otherwise copy my contacts from my smartphone to my desktop PC, but can't figure out how to do it..

    My smartphone used to sync with the office Exchange Server, but ideally I now want to sync my Outlook contacts with my home PC using standalone Outlook 2003. My PC runs XP SP3 and ActiveSync 4.5. Smartphone is Windows Mobile 6 Standard.

    It looks as if I cannot sync Exchage Server contacts to standalone Outlook - if I try to switch to synching with Outlook it tells me the contacts on my phone will be deleted. Is there a safe way of doing this? I would rather retype all my contacts from the phone screen than risk losing them - I can no longer access my former office's Exchange Server.

    If I can't use ActiveSync, is there a way of exporting contacts in bulk from Outlook on Windows Mobile?

    Thanks for any help - Firepig
