Setting up Outlook Sync

Note that Outlook Sync (and Active Sync) is a licensed Add-on, and you will need to be set up to use it. Contact us to sign up for it if you'd like it or want to know more about it's capabilities.

Enlighten's mail server can be used with Outlook sync to synchronize your Calendar and other items (such as contacts and such) between your Outlook installation on your PC and our server.

This means that you can use Outlook to manage your Calendar at the office, but always get to your calendar on the road simply by going to our web-mail service.

In Conjunction with this, you may also choose ActiveSync, with which you can even sync your calendar with Outlook on an Android device, or your i-device.

It's recommended that you use a new Outlook profile to set this up the first time (and give you a chance to copy your existing Calendar).
