Outlook slower at retrieving emails from exchange server than windows mobile device

I connect remotely to an Exchange 2003 server using Outlook 2003. The Outlook 'email accounts' type is "Exchange" not "POP/SMTP". This  "Exchange" email account uses the "connect to my exchange mailbox using http".

It works, but its a couple of minutes slower than my Windows Mobile device at retrieving emails, which is set to activesync sync 'as items arrive'.

Given that both phone and pc use fast connections, I can't see why there should be this difference, unless ActiveSync maintains a persistent connection. If that is the case is there any application which will make Outlook also stay persistent? If not any solutions gratefully received.

Emails to your mobile device are "Pushed."  Emails to your Outlook are "Pulled" by Outlook at the time setting you hve in the "Send and Receive" properties inside "Tools/ Options."

Would be great if there was an add-in to Outlook to make the connection persistent i.e. push.
