Basic Question about Sunbird Sync/load with Pocket PC

I am new to Portable applications, but love the idea. Form the site, it appears that Sunbird can be installed on either a flash drive or a PDA... is this true? Is there a way to run it on the flash drive but sync it with the PDA for access to my calendar when I am not at a PC? I currently sync Outlook with my Pocket PC, but would like to abandon Outlook for portable apps.

Windows Mobile is not Windows

These are Windows applications. They do not run on Windows Mobile. Windows Mobile is a different operating system that can not run Windows apps.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Windows Mobile

I know Pocket PCs have completely different operating systems, but when I signed up for a PortableApps account, they gave me the option of selecting "USB Flash Drive" or "PDA Connected to a Computer" as my preferred portable device. I guess this means these Apps can be saved on a PDA as a file, and then run on a PC when they are connected (but don't run on the PDA).

Is there any other application that synchronizes between Sunbird/Thunderbird and a PDA (similar to ActiveSync for Outlook). Someone told me there was a for-sale program that did, which would be useful to me when I'm not near a PC and have to get to my schedule or contacts... any advice on how to be mobile?

Thanks,

Russell
