Synchronization Overview

This feature is only available in SmarterMail Enterprise edition.

SmarterMail uses multiple data synchronization technologies to sync mailbox data with email clients and mobile devices:

  • Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync is an optional add-on that syncs SmarterMail mailboxes with most smartphones.
  • SmarterMail Sync is a desktop utility that syncs SmarterMail mailboxes with Outlook and Windows Mobile devices.
  • SyncML is a platform-independent information synchronization standard that syncs SmarterMail mailboxes with Outlook, Thunderbird, and most smartphones.

In addition, the Add to Outlook button in the SmarterMail Webmail interface uses two-way synchronization technology to sync a SmarterMail mailbox with Outlook.

For more information regarding the different synchronization methods available for SmarterMail 6.x, please refer to the Collaboration, Synchronization, and Over-the-Air Mobile Communications with SmarterMail document on the Help and Documentation page of the SmarterTools website.
