After I read that, I am now trying to get that to work. I don't have any 
ActiveSync-capable clients myself, but a colleague of mine has a Windows 
Mobile cell phone. He managed to configure the account, the login to our 
Cyrus server is successful, but nothing is synchronized. I've enabled 
debug.txt, but there's nothing enlightening to be found there.

What's more, without having gotten it to work, I fail to see what the 
advantage over a proper IMAP account is. I don't see how there could be an 
actual push component with such a setup. Maybe I'm missing something?
