How can I synchronize the contacts/calendar/to do list in web mail with my handheld or desktop program?

May First/People Link uses a web mail program (Horde) that supports SyncML, a standard protocol for synchronizing personal contact information between computers.

Any 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.

To see if your device or program is SyncML compatible, see the list of Funambol supported software and the Funambol community projects.

All 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:

Using Thunderbird/Icedove

If you want to use SyncML with Thunderbird/Icedove, first download and install Lightning - the calendar program. Be sure it is working properly (you will need to restart Thunderbird/Icedove).

Next, download the Funabmol Mozilla plugin.
