Pocket Outlook Object Model Security (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)


Applications access the mobile device's local PIM data store through the Pocket Outlook Object Model (POOM) API. POOM is a COM-based library that provides an object hierarchy that simplifies the process of creating, modifying and displaying appointments, tasks, and contacts. Because PIM data is accessed through POOM, the privacy of this information is potentially at risk if a rogue application gains access to the device.

Download Applications Only from Trusted Sources

Do not download applications to your device if they are not from a trusted source. Rogue applications can gain control of your private data and corrupt it, or use it in a wrongful manner.

There are no configurable registry settings for POOM.

No specific ports are used for POOM.
