Configuring Accounts for Synchronization

SmarterMail Sync is only available for SmarterMail Enterprise Edition

Before you can synchronize any SmarterMail accounts with Outlook using SmarterMail Sync, you must first set them up in the sync tool. This will provide the tool with the information it needs to connect to your SmarterMail account(s) online.

To manage your accounts, after installing the sync tool, click on the SmarterMail Sync toolbar item, and choose Account Settings from the menu.

Accounts need the following information:

  • Name - Enter a friendly name to identify this account.
  • SmarterMail URL - Type the full URL of your SmarterMail webmail interface into this dialog. For example, http://mail.example.com
  • Email Address - Enter your full email address.
  • Password - Type the password for your SmarterMail account.
  • Synchronization - Check the boxes for the items you wish to synchronize. If you wish to sync to a non-default calendar, task list, or contact list, click on the "..." button next to it.

You can use the Test button to ensure that the connection works, and use the Next button to store the information.
