Windows Authentication from offline Windows Mobile Device

Hello,

First off apologies for my lack of .net/windows mobile knowledge, it's not part of my skill set and I'm struggling on finding an answer for this one.

We resell a product that runs on Windows Mobile 6 and 6.5.  When the device is connected to the network it logs in via a web service that sits on IIS using a username and password that is stored in a database .
When the device is offline, this still works, we have assumed here that this is something coded in and that the password that is stored in the database is taken across to the embedded MSSQL db on the device.

So would it be possible to do the same setup as above but with an AD login?  Am thinking here about:-
1.  Use the AD login via IIS to connect to the database for synchronisation
2.  Use cached credentials on the device to allow login when offline

So I know point 1 works, is point 2 possible?  I've checked the MSDN docs and can see this:-
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa923650.aspx
But its talking about accessing remote resources, can it also cover the offline application access?

Incase you're wondering the company who we resell the software for aren't being very helpful.

many thanks,
