MailEnable Features - Synchronization for Microsoft Outlook

This client utility allows synchronization of appointments, tasks and contacts between Microsoft Outlook and MailEnable Enterprise server.

For example, creating an appointment in Microsoft Outlook and using the MailEnable Sync Utility will show the appointment within MailEnable's web client. Similarly, creating tasks, appointments or contacts within the MailEnable Webmail interface can also be synchronized to appear within Outlook.

It is possible to select items to synchronize; select tasks, appointments and/or contacts and only these items will be synchronized. Select when to synchronize - manually, on start-up/shutdown of Outlook, MailEnable will detect what has been updated and automatically synchronize these items.

Synchronization Utility Settings

HostName The Host Name is the name or IP address of the MailEnable mail server/Webmail server that provides access to your e-mail. It must be the same host name that you would use to access your e-mail via Webmail. ie.
Username The username is your MailEnable username as you would use to access Webmail. It is normally formatted as MailboxName@Postoffice, unless the post office is the default post office for the system, in which case you can simply just use the 'MailboxName' alone.
Password The password is your MailEnable password as you would use when accessing your MailEnable hosted email.
Store The message store is the Outlook root folder that you wish to synchronize with MailEnable. Normally, you would use the Outlook default message store (which is the message store that appears with a house icon under your Outlook folders). If you are unsure as to which store to specify, configure this setting as the Default Message Store.
Items You should check the items that you wish to synchronize with MailEnable. Only those items checked will be synchronized with the server.
Troubleshooting By selecting this option, the utility will produce a log file into the MailEnable BIN directory. This log file will list the actions performed during the synchronization. It may also contain any errors that have occurred.
Synchronize on Start-up By enabling this setting, the MailEnable Outlook Synchronization Utility will synchronize when Outlook starts.
Synchronize on Shutdown By enabling this setting, the MailEnable Outlook Synchronization Utility will synchronize when Outlook closes.
