claws-mail-synce-plugin(1) Windows CE device synchronization plugin.


This manual page documents briefly the claws-mail-synce-plugin.

This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

claws-mail-synce-plugin is a plugin (loadable module) for the Claws Mail mailer.

This plugin assists in keeping the addressbook of a Windows CE device (Pocket PC, iPAQ, Smartphone etc) in sync with Claws Mail's addressbook, with respect to email addresses.

It doesn't do real automatic syncing, like Microsoft's ActiveSync and others.

It adds a ``SynCE'' entry to the Tools menu, which does the following:

For every email address that is in the WinCE device and not in Claws Mail's addressbook, offer to add it to Claws' addressbook or, alternatively, just provide a list of such email addresses.

For every email address in Claws' addressbook, check if it also exists on the WinCE device. Provide the user with a list of email addresses that are in Claws Mail's addressbook but not on the WinCE device.

Note that no direct writing access to the WinCE device is supported (so far).


Before using a plugin you must instruct Claws Mail to load it on startup.

For this you must go ``Configuration'' menu on main window toolbar, open ``Plugins...'' dialog, click on the ``Load plugin...'' button and select the plugin file, named, and press the ``Open'' button.
