Synchronization Methods

SmarterMail Enterprise 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.
  • SyncML is a platform-independent information synchronization standard that syncs SmarterMail mailboxes with Outlook, Thunderbird, and most smartphones.
  • CalDAV is an extension of the WebDAV protocol that syncs SmarterMail calendars with Macs, iPads, iPhones, and other devices/applications that use the technology.
  • CardDAV is an extension of the WebDAV protocol that syncs SmarterMail contacts with Macs, iPads, iPhones, Thunderbird and other devices/applications that use the technology.
  • The Add to Outlook feature within the SmarterMail Webmail interface uses two-way synchronization technology to sync a SmarterMail mailbox with Outlook 2007 or higher and provides read-only capability for Outlook 2003.
  • SmarterMail Sync is a desktop utility that syncs SmarterMail mailboxes with Outlook and Windows Mobile devices.
