SyncML

This feature is only available in SmarterMail Enterprise edition.

SyncML (Synchronization Markup Language), also referred to as Open Mobile Alliance Data Synchronization (OMA DS), is a platform-independent open standard for synchronization of information. It is most commonly used to synchronize and/or back up contacts and calendars between mobile phones and a network-based service or computer.

SmarterMail uses the Funambol SyncML plug-in for synchronizing calendars, contacts, tasks, and notes with Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, and most smartphones.
