This article describes the process of downloading and installing the funambol.com SyncML plugin for the PocketPC.  This will allow the synchronization of calendars, contacts, tasks and notes between a SmarterMail user account and the PocketPC. NOTE: SmarterMail does not support Corporate Calendar because it is a special app and does not follow AS standards. This note only effects the Motorola Droid, Droid 2 and Droid X.

Configure SmarterMail Accounts for Synchronization Using SyncML

SmarterMail uses multiple data synchronization technologies to sync mailbox data with email clients and mobile devices. Before users can sync using SyncML, the system administrator must enable synchronization using SyncML for the domain. NOTE: SmarterMail does not support Corporate Calendar because it is a special app and does not follow AS standards. This note only effects the Motorola Droid, Droid 2 and Droid X. Funambol 8.5 is recommended to use due to protocol changes that were made in later version.\r\n\r\nFollow these steps to enable SyncML for all of the users on a domain:\r\n

    \r\n

  1. Log in as the system administrator.
  2. \r\n

  3. Click the Manage icon.
  4. \r\n

  5. Expand Domains in the left tree view and click All Domains.
  6. \r\n

  7. Select desired domain and click Edit in the actions toolbar.
  8. \r\n

  9. Click the Features tab.
  10. \r\n

  11. Select the Enable SyncML checkbox.
  12. \r\n

  13. Click Save.
  14. \r\n

\r\nSyncML is now enabled for all accounts in the domain. Users will have to install the Funambol SyncML plug-in prior to synchronizing their data with Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, or most smartphones.
