If you are on Windows Mobile 5.0, it is not very easy to distinguish between Outlook and BirdieSync (which is not the case with Windows Mobile 2003: the screens displayed to the user don´t mention Outlook or BirdieSync anylonger :( ). To access ActiveSync options, while your device is connected, double click on the ActiveSync icon to open ActivSync window, then access to the menu Tools/Options. You should then be able to unselect "Contacts", "Appointments" and "Tasks" (caution: the Outlook one, not the BirdieSync one: check the help file to see the different icons). Then select "cards", "events" and "tasks" (the BirdieSync one).
I hope it will help.
