CLONMEL -- I occasionally hand-roll my electronic address books because I want to ensure all of my contact managers contain relevant details for my short lists. That short list of names needs to be on my mobile phones (both my Motorola phone and my Nokia Communicator) my Palm desktop, my Sony Clié and my Palm m505. The A-List data data should sync every time the devices connect to the desktop but sometimes relevant tidbits saved as updates don't move from the mobile device to the desktop. That means they don't make it to the mobile device. It pays to randomly cross-check the mobile devices to see if they synced correctly off the desktop.
I was impressed by some of the domains in addresses used by Misty, my younger daughter. They include Ball State University, Brown University, New York University, Northern Arizona University, Princeton, Stanford, and the University of Chicago. Most of her close friends use Hotmail for their e-mail connectivity. Only a handful use Yahoo, AOL and MSN. The free mail data mirrors the demographic in my address book. It's remarkable how durable a Hotmail address can be. x_ref153 x_ref101sw
