    Do you have WM5 or WM6 on the device?

    I am not sure that matters. The firewall is probably just blocking one or more of the required TCP/UDP ports. To correct this put your ESS firewall in interactive mode and then plugin your phone. ESS will then learn all the required ports by prompting you to allow/deny the traffic. Make sure to allow the connection and save your choice so rules get built.

    I am running a WM6 Tilt with no issues but that is a WM6 device.

    thanks
    have tried that - but getting an error message:

    "Cannot synchronize with the Outlook profile you are using, because a different profile was previously set up or the profile is password-protected.
    Please open Outlook using the appropriate profile"


    i will work on that - any suggestions welcome

    You need WMDC in addition to Sync Center on Vista. WMDC is the Vista equivalent of ActiveSync.

    Start reading Here.

    And another question, in case you already have WMDC installed: Does it work if you disable the firewall?
