MDaemon Messaging Server

ActiveSync for MDaemon: Windows Mobile Setup

MDaemon® Messaging Server now includes support for Microsoft's ActiveSync®, which is a separately licensed over-the-air (OTA) ActiveSync (AirSync) server. ActiveSync provides synchronization of a user's default email, calendar, and contact data between their MDaemon/WorldClient account and an ActiveSync capable device.

ActiveSync for MDaemon installs along with MDaemon but it is a separate product from MDaemon and will only run as a trial for 30 days. After that, a one-time fee is required. The 30 day trial begins when you install MDaemon and enable ActiveSync for the first time.

*ActiveSync does not work with Standard or Free versions of MDaemon.

Enabling ActiveSync in MDaemon

In MDaemon, ActiveSync can be enabled via a checkbox under the Setup | Web, Sync & IM menu.

NOTE: ActiveSync is a web-service extension and will not work if your web server (such as WorldClient®) is not running on port 80 (for http) and/or port 443 (for https). ActiveSync will not work on other ports.
