How SmarterMail Sync Works

SmarterMail Sync is only available for SmarterMail Enterprise Edition 3.1 and higher

SmarterMail Sync is an on-demand synchronization tool. After installing it, a toolbar will be added to your copy of Microsoft Outlook that will allow you to easily synchronize with SmarterMail whenever you need.

SmarterMail Sync uses port 80 (HTTP) to connect to your SmarterMail server on the internet, then uses internal methods to synchronize the information with Outlook. In most cases, this process is completely automatic. If a conflict occurs (for example, if an item was edited on the web and in Outlook since the last sync), you will be asked how to handle the conflict.
