please enter your exchange server credentials

I am trying to use activesync to sync with Windows 7 running Outlook 2007 and Windows Mobile 6.1.

My T-mobile 3g Dash keeps asking me 'please enter your exchange server credentials', but I don't have an exchange server.  I'm just trying to use activesync to sync my local outlook account mail, contacts, etc.

My local mail account doesn't have an exchange mail setup and so I can't imagine what is causing the phone to act this way.

Activesync reports the error 'your password is incorrect.  please update youir password to continue synchronizing.'

The HTC 3g Dash  phone reports the error: 'you have stopped the last synchronization support code: 0x8500200f'

OK, well answer my own question.  It turns out that you MUST keep your pst file on the c: drive.  I tried to keep it on my USB drive and that must be perceived as some sort of exchange server location by activesync (windows mobile device center).  Once I moved the file onto the c: drive everything started working.
