Integration with OutlookTM
(Outlook is a trademark of Microsoft and all references in this help recognize this trademark.)

This feature is available in Enterprise Edition only

Calendars and contact lists can be loaded into Outlook and displayed side-by-side with your existing Outlook calendar and contacts. This allows you to see your current appointments and contacts from SmarterMail right in Outlook.

In order to use the Add to Outlook connection, you should have Outlook installed and be using it.

  1. In SmarterMail, navigate to the calendar or contact list you wish to connect.
  2. Click on the Add to Outlook icon from the actions toolbar.
  3. A popup window will appear with additional instructions. You'll be prompted to select the version of Outlook you're using, which calendar or contact list you wish to sync, and then you have the option of changing the default Description and/or add in a Display Name for the item you're syncing.
  4. Click OK to initiate the connector.
  5. A security popup will appear from Outlook, explaining that an external source wants to attach to Outlook. Click on Yes to allow the connector to attach.
  6. The resource is now available in Outlook.

Note: If you change the password on your email account, the connections will be broken and will have to be reestablished.


Sharing a resource, such as a calendar, contacts, notes, tasks, or email folders, will allow the users you specify to access the resource with a pre-determined permission level.
