keep in-tact,

February 21st, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’ve been messing around with different syncing mechanism over the passed days. The goal was to keep my smartphone (Nokia E71 with symbian s60 3rd), two apple notebooks (iBook(OS 10.4) and Powerbook(OS 10.5)) and my pc’s at home and work all running Debian or its derivatives aka Ubuntu in sync.

Fo Mail I use my own IMAP-Server – so theres no problem as all mail is kept in only one place – the mail server

Bookmarks are now synced using the foxmarks tool which works not only for Firefox but also safari (and even IE). I use my own secure webdav folder simply because i trust myself more than the (trustworthy) foxmark people.

Most complicated was to get my addresses, notes and events distributed between evolution under linux with my smartphone running symbian. The solution is Funambol in connection with SyncEvolution on the pc’s. The Nokia E71 has its own “native” synchronization client. For syncevolution there’s also a tray-tool that does timed automatic syncs – genesis.

I will try this setup the following weeks and see if it works well enough for productive use.
