The Pocket Outlook Object Model (POOM) for Windows CE is a COM-based library that mirrors the desktop version of the Outlook Object Model, but with a smaller scope of functionality to accommodate the practical constraints of mobile devices. It provides programmatic access to Personal Information Management (PIM) data items and container objects on devices running the Windows CE operating system. It is an object-oriented framework that applications use for creating, modifying, and displaying appointment, task, and contact items, and for manipulating the folders that contain them.

POOM for Windows CE is also known as POOM1, to differentiate it from the extened version of POOM (also known as POOM2) that ships with Windows Mobile. For information on POOM2, see Pocket Outlook Object Model Application Development for Windows Mobile-based Devices on MSDN.
