I love using my Pocket PC with its wireless LAN card to read my work e-mail at meetings. But, for various reasons, I don't use Pocket Inbox. Instead, I use Outlook Mobile Access and Outlook Web Access. And, instead of making a Favorites link, I created my own Pocket Internet Explorer start page. This way, I can access all my favorite links (not just Outlook Mobile Access and Outlook Web Access) when I open Internet Explorer. Here's how I did it.
- In Notepad, create a web page with the links in it to all your favorite sites.
NOTE: Remember to change the Outlook Mobile Access and Outlook Web Access links to what you use.
<HEAD><TITLE>My Personal Home Page</TITLE></HEAD>
<H3>My Personal Home Page</H3>
<a href="https://mail.example.com/oma">Outlook Mobile Access</a> <BR>
<a href="https://mail.example.com/exchange/username/inbox?cmd=contents">Outlook Web Access</a> <BR>
<a href="http://mobile.msn.com/pocketpc">MSN Mobile</a> <BR>
<a href="http://wap.oa.yahoo.com/">Yahoo Mobile</a> <BR>
<B>Other Links</B> <BR>

- Save the page (I named mine MyPage.htm).
- With your Pocket PC already sync'd to your desktop computer, open ActiveSync and click Explore.
- Copy the .htm file you created to your Pocket PC.
- On your Pocket PC, start File Explorer and open the My Documents folder.
- Tap the .htm file you copied to your Pocket PC.
- Start Pocket Internet Explorer, and tap Tools.
- Tap Options, and then tap Use Current to make your personalized Web page your home page.
