Synchronization of Contacts from/to Webmail or Outlook

Post by mrito » Mon Mar 17, 2014 6:48 am

Hi,
We've just recently purchased Mailenable 8.0 Enterprise and able to test the Synchronization Utility 1.24 in Outlook to allow us sync contacts, calendar and task without ActiveSync license. Right now we were able to sync from Outlook and Webmail but one thing we notice is that not all fields either from Outlook or Webmail are automatically copied by synchronization utility, e.g. Contact Picture are not sync between webmail or Outlook and vice versa. Anyone can assist me on this please?

Thanks,
Malvin

Those won't sync due to different values. You had also better double check with your calendar to make sure that it is also syncing.

I too would be interested to know the answer. Looking for a new mailserver as SM just isn't up to the job, particularly with the contact / email / calendar sync outside of Activesync.

I don't want to jump from the frying pan to the fire !

thanks for any info

Hi,

All the contact fields that are configurable within the web mail interface are the fields that will be synced to the server and MailEnable Outlook MAPI connector. However the Outlook synchronization utility will not sync all fields. Dont have a specific list sorry.
