Always-up-to-date Notifications is a new feature in Exchange 2003 that permits an always up-to-date user experience with Pocket PC. This feature is only available on devices that have Microsoft Windows Mobile 2003 operating system. By default, Always-up-to-date Notifications are installed with Exchange 2003. When an event is generated in a user's Exchange account, a notification is sent to the user's device. The device performs synchronization in the background so that the most current information is available when the user next checks the device.
