     1= How can I synchronize the contacts/calendar/to do list in web mail with my handheld or desktop program? =
     2
     3May First/People Link uses a web mail program ([http://horde.org/ Horde]) that supports [WikiPedia:SyncML SyncML], a standard protocol for synchronizing personal contact information between computers.
     4
     5Any handheld device or desktop application that supports SyncML can be setup to sync your calendar, to do list, and address book info to and from web mail.
     6
     7To see if your device or program is SyncML compatible, see the [https://www.forge.funambol.org/download/ list of Funambol supported software] and the Funambol [https://www.forge.funambol.org/participate/projects.html community projects].
     8
     9All clients must be configured with the same information - although different programs refer to the settings with different names. Below are the basic settings you need for any SyncML client:
     10
     11 * Host/Location/Server: https://webmail.mayfirst.org/rpc.php
     12 * Databases/Path/Remote Name
     13  * Calendar: calendar
     14  * Tasks/To List: tasks
     15  * Notes: notes
     16  * Address book/Contacts: contacts
     17
     18== Using Thunderbird/Icedove ==
     19
     20If you want to use SyncML with Thunderbird/Icedove, first download and install [http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/lightning/ Lightning - the calendar program]. Be sure it is working properly (you will need to restart Thunderbird/Icedove).
     21
     22Next, download [https://mozilla-plugin.forge.funambol.org/ the Funabmol Mozilla plugin].
